|Excerpt from Agricultural Poem: Also the Old Homestead
God framed the earth, by right decreed the plan
Of agriculture, first great work of man;
Since his expulsion from the Holy Eden,
Supplies have flowed from agriculture's garden;
This grand achievement - it has ever been
Well carried on, in varied forms, by men.
Descriptive thus, you heard the classic Paige,
Twelve months ago, proclaiming from this stage
A prose oration, theme like poets song,
Whose promptings bade true genius speed along:
Proud effort - bright reflex of master mind,
Imparting knowledge - lit'rature refined:
He treads the forum, you the rural field,
While we, behind the counter stand concealed.
But Arkell's vivid teachings oft inspire
The listener with bright streams of mental fire;
His morrow effort, on this honored stage,
Will prove him fitted for some riper age;
