I wonder what it is about you that excites me,
What it is that draws me towards you,
That I look forward to seeing you around the campus grounds;
Perhaps you provide grounds for a roaming bird to land,
A universe for a lone star to be radiant,
A home for a weary heart to seek comfort and rest;
Sometimes words are so limited to express how we feel..
What more to speak of for a Raisin that holds such appeal?
