your graduation, Opening a door not easily reached! Now go through it: on the other side Great mountains become hills, and then just fields Rolling eastward towards a rising sun. All now is success and celebration, The music of deeds done and barriers breached. Underneath, uncertainties still glide Lean and hungry as the sweet day yields, And golden moments through your fingers run. The rock on which you stand is your creation, Illustrating what your teachers preached Of learning and the provenance of pride. Nor need you fear the wind, as knowledge shields Such as earn it from what storms may
