Impromptu Visitation

The morning

Sunshine woke her

Spring couldnt wait

She conspired

She slipped past winters gate

And visited us

College lawn full of robins

Promises of Spring

Abundantly appearing

Lawn full of robins

While at my college today I happened to notice the lawn was filled with robins! So many of them hopping about, it was amazing to see that many at once! Very encouraging sign of Spring.

Smiling, we remember

Stars of Vaudeville

It is titled “Theatrical Heartscape” and depicts characters from vaudeville because the theatre has a long history of vaudeville. On the mural are—W.C. Fields, Theda Bara, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin
