That Stilly River, honored sage
A woman is for any age
An eye as keen as shattering shards
That glisten on the morning yard
And womanly large of mind and heart
And every other certain part,
For who but one of such a hand
Could heave us all past fourteen grand?
Yet now, at fourteen thousand one,
'T is plain to see, the act is done!
And gaze and wonder many now,
For only Stilly's shimmering brow
Was here to see us all to gain it!
No other prowess can explain it.
The prize is hers by any laws
And hers by rights the due applause
And as the night from dawn is ghosting
We thank her for such valiant posting!
