1937 Lebanon Junction High School Annual - Page 31

The Flood of 1937

Day and night the cold rains fell
On many a wintry hill,
And on many a quiet lonely dell
Or city street, until
The waters rose on valleys wide
By many a winding riverside.
We saw the muddy waters rise
For seven nights and days,
While drifting clouds in winter skies
Were dark with mist always
Till flooding waters cold and brown
Had covered more than half our town.
The people moved away from home
To escape the waters there,
For on those winter days had come
Destruction everywhere;
And many came to find a home
In the high school building on the hill.
At last receding waters left
Destruction far and wide,
But bravely all withstood loss
Wrought by the raging tide,
And since those days of floods are gone
L. J. rebuilds and carries on.

- W. C. Shultz.
