Tomorrow will mark the ninth anniversary of the death of Dr. Charles "Buck" Offutt, who was quite a memorable figure at DeMatha for over 50 years. We still have a card from the time of his death. On the back is the poem 'Crossing the Bar' by Alfred Lord Tennyson. It was a poem Buck taught for years in his classes. Seems apropos to include it here:
Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea!
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns against home
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness or farewell,
When I embark;
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
God Bless. Go Nats!
