Although penned in 1914 by a Glennie student, the pride and fondness for Glennie have not diminished through our long and proud history.
Our days at the Glennie are happy -
We enjoy every moment of life -
Though lessons may sometimes be irksome
And the learning of morals a strife.
But these are the only small worries
That trouble the darling old place -
For we all live together in concord,
And everything’s quiet and peace.
The new girls will come, and the old girls
Will carry Glennie’s good name
Through the years that are stretching before it,
Perhaps bringing some of us fame.
If later we meet on life’s highway
And our skies are not nearly so blue,
There is always one great consolation
And a gladness which others share too.
We can think of the fast-fading years, girls,
Till we find that bright spot on life’s tide
Where we meet at the Glennie together,
The school of our love and our pride.
From Glennie Gazette October 1914 p.18
