May 24, 2009


The day I became an alumna of Cornell University. 

and it feels so damn good. 

Now if only I can land... WILL land that offer. 
What better way to honor this magnanimous occasion than to reference Cornell's Alma Mater and Evening Song. 


Evening Song 
listen | download sheet music 
When the sun fades far away 
In the crimson of the west, 
And the voices of the day 
Murmur low and sink to rest, 

Refrain 
Music with the twilight falls 
O'er the dreaming lake and dell; 
'Tis an echo from the walls 
Of our own, our fair Cornell. 

Welcome night and welcome rest; 
Fading music fare thee well! 
Joy to all we love the best, 
Love to thee our fair Cornell!



Alma Mater 
listen | download sheet music 
Far above Cayuga's waters, 
With its waves of blue, 
Stands our noble alma mater, 
Glorious to view. 

Refrain 
Lift the chorus, speed it onward, 
Loud her praises tell; 
Hail to thee, our alma mater! 
Hail, all hail, Cornell! 

Far above the busy humming 
Of the bustling town, 
Reared against the arch of heaven, 
Looks she proudly down.
