Step softly

When night descends upon the campus
And even Lake Bob calmly sleeps,
When dark has silenced goosely rumpus
And Security his vigil keeps—
Step softly!

The form of Beauty glides along
On elven sandals dancing light.
Though elephants have footfalls strong,
O gentle lady, I pray you might—
Step softly!

The wall dividing stair and dreamers
Is not so thick as one might wish,
And oft thud steps of midnight schemers.
So if your studies keep you late—
Step softly!
