Once upon a time in a land far, far away, lived a girl with a mind of brilliant capacity. 

She aspired to attend a college with plentiful opportunities so she attended Barnard in the city.

Tuition was not a factor for this girl nor any other girl slightly less witty.

She attended Barnard and learned plenty.


This Barnard graduate had goals so high,

her peers feared she'd follow Icarus and hit the sky.

Still, she thought that she might try,

so she spread her wings and fought to fly.
