Collegia – Ode 38: Another Fine Day


Another fine day.
How time flies!
Where to-day
My way lies?
I don’t know,
To and fro;
Potter hither,
Maybe thither.

Five nights to-night!
Sound the harmonium!
Shouts of delight,
Five nights to-night.
Great pandemonium,
Great pandy, pandy, pandy,
Great pandemonium!

Goodbye, old Coll,
Too soon we’ll meet
After the hol
Has vanished fleet.
But there’s yet,
‘Case we forget
Five nights to go
With footsteps slow.
