The Graduation Procession

We processed across the Quad
and along the corridor
and through the Gallery to the Chapel.

The sun shone on the mortar boards
and the smart suits,
frivolous dresses and fabulous shoes.

The sun shone on the academics
in their multicoloured gowns
and fantastic hats.

The sun shone on the wide smiles
of proud parents and guests.

The sun shone on the turrets and towers
so that the building glowed.

It was a wonderful afternoon.
