    L'Abbe de Ville proposed a toast,
    His master, as the rising Sun:
    Reisbach then gave the Empress Queen,
    As the bright moon and much praise won.
    The Earl of Stair, whose turn next came,
    Gave for his toast his own King Will,
    As Joshua the sun of Nun,
    Who made both Sun and Moon stand still.

You to the left and I to the right,
For the ways of men must sever--
And read more

You to the left and I to the right,
For the ways of men must sever--
And it may be for a day and a night,
And it well may be forever.
But whether we meet or whether we part,
(For our ways are past our knowing)
A pledge from the heart to its fellow heart,
On the ways we all are going!
Here's luck!
For we know not where we are going.

I fill this cup to one made up

A woman, of her gentle sex

I fill this cup to one made up
Of loveliness alone,
A woman, of her gentle sex
The seeming paragon;
To whom the better elements
And kindly stars have given
A form so fair that, like the air,
'Tis less of earth than heaven.

I come from good old Boston,
The home of the bean and the cod,
Where Cabots speak only to Lowells,
And the Lowells speak only to God.

Here's to the town of New Haven,
The home of the truth and the light,
Where God speaks to Jones,
In the very same tones,
That he uses with Hadley and Dwight.
