From Alma Mater Vol. 2: The Northeast
Available Now for only 99 cents!
A flood of Blue & White lives here by the harbor,
As Downtown Boston overflows with ardor,
We keep—this city that walks afloat
With drunken sailors who rock the boat.
Members of the UMass Sailing Crew
Glide Broadway and then all through
The pubs and each part of Titletown—
Waves of students deemed tidal bound.
A city that’s left other towns in ruins,
Cheers to the Patriots-Sox-Celtics & Bruins,
May the starkness of our classes allay,
In March when we toast to St. Patrick’s Day.
The Boston globe sets free without bail,
And those who walk take the Freedom Trail,
The further we sail, the more we deepen:
As Blue & White lights from Boston’s Beacon.
