Reunion Sonnet

by Catharyn Turner ’91

Twenty five years have passed since we were sent

Into the world to set it all aflame

We’ve come, we’ve seen, we’ve fought, and we have lent

Our talents and our voices with her name

Behind us and in front as we have led

Committees, companies, and families too

And all the time, we strive to get ahead,

well spent as we do what we’re wont to do

Then touching down for reconnection here

We smile, we hug, we shout, we pose, we cry

We sing with mighty voices our Greek cheer

We leave, refreshed with banners in the sky

A weekend of return to youth unbarred

Friendships remade, the glory of Bryn Mawr
