This is P. K. Yonge certainly not the
biggest, but one of the best schools
around. Through the years, it has been a
place of many happy times for all of us.
The annual staff worked hard to bring
you a keepsake of your year the
Led by the courageous Mrs. Plant (who
didn't know what she was getting into),
students contributed photographs,
poetry, artwork and general talent to
make the YONGESTER what it is.
So read on, people! We hope you like
what you see.
*Note! There is absolutely no truth in the
rumor that we cannot accept criticism.
All complaints are dealt with fairly!
Like a quilt
Has many colors
Each day comes
As a new piece
When placed together
With the others
Reveals an overall
Lit by the new morning
Red sun breaks the sky
Into pieces of color
Birds singing of the day.
This place of light and
Pondered by men since .
Secrets of the deep
Green waters cover
What lies beneath
Shells and rocks, fish
And crabs .
Sands blow covering up
Tales of what was there
Only to be washed
Into the sea once more.
Now where do we go and what do we do
When there is no longer old, only the new?
Are we searching for happiness?
Are we searching for love?
Are we hoping for sunny days
From the sky up above?
We will keep our heads high
Through the darkness of night,
Knowing there is something
That can bring us the light.
It might take awhile but soon we will see,
Who we really are and what we will be.
The Sailboat cut out ripples
Throughout the waters deepest blue,
And on the shore were caves
Which bored the cliffs of grayish hue.
Above, the day was windy, and
It set my sails astir,
While Seagulls blew, around
And through the misty clouds they were.
And oh! to be a sailor on
A day such as today,
With sea, not shore and
Sails, not oar, to carry
Someone told me
I had pretty eyes today
Funny, when I look,
I see green and gray
And reflections of my joys
Together with unknown
Maybe I know what they
My eyes are the doorway
BLUE WAVES REACH THEIR ONE DESIRE BY

The Queen sits in regal grace
A paper airplane (bearing the
Words "Exlax saves")
Soars above her white clouds of hair
A King Kong
Stature has she
As she attempts to capture it in her small
Shrill twill of telephone
Interrupts the noise of rustling papers
Sit puppets in wooden chairs
Sometimes blinking an eye
Or leaning back on
A childless mother
(childless no more)
With a swollen stomach
Whispers are silenced
As salt and pepper
Marches, glares, stares
She never giggles
They never do.

what words can be said
to bring comfort
to this cold day
a young, alive, bright flower
was ripped away from this world
even though his ashes will
give rebirth to another flower
tears still fall.
and deep in our hearts
we know all is not lost
the scent still remains.

I hope the day will be a lighter highway
For friends are found on every road
Can you ever think of any better way
For the lost and weary travelers to go
It seems to me a crime that we should age
These fragile times should never slip us by
A time you never can or shall erase
As friends together watch their childhood fly
Making friends for the world to see
Let the people know you've got what you need
With a friend at hand you will see the light
If your friends are there everything's alright.
