Excerpt from Verses of a Collegian The Growing Murmur. (Class Poem, C. C. N. Y., '79.) What is all this busy murmur that is day by day increasing, That with mighty sound is swelling, greater, louder hour by hour?Can it be the proclamation of Man's glory still unceasing, Of the giant strides of Science, or the Age's wondrous power? Will it bring us joyful tidings of a time of deeper feeling, Of a day when greater reverence will be more and more widespread; About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
