The White Enchantress
James Weldon Johnson
O BROTHERS mine. take attention! Take attention!The great white enchantress drives out to-night.Trust non your art nor your strength.Your lone safety lies in flight ;For in her glimpse there is a trap.And in her smiling there is a blight.
The great white enchantress you have non seen?Then. younger brothers mine. forsooth.Like nursery kids you have lookedFor ancient beldam and snaggle-tooth ;But no. non so ; the enchantress appearsIn all the glowing appeals of young person.
Her lips are like clove pinks. ruddy.Her face like new-born lilies. carnival.Her eyes like ocean Waterss. blue.She moves with elusive grace and air.And all about her caput there floatsThe aureate glorification of her hair.
But though she ever therefore appearsIn signifier of young person and temper of hilarity.Unnumbered centuries are hers.The infant planets saw her birth ;The kid of throbbing Life is she.Twin sister to the greedy Earth.
And back behind those smiling lips.And down within those riant eyes.And underneath the soft caressOf manus and voice and whizzing suspirations.The shadow of the jaguar lurks.The spirit of the lamia lies.
For I have seen the great white enchantress.And she has led me to her den.And I have kissed her ruddy. ruddy lipsAnd barbarous face so white and just ;Around me she has twined her weaponries.And jump me with her xanthous hair.
I felt those ruddy lips burn and searMy organic structure like a life coal ;Obeyed the power of those eyesAs the needle milk sicknesss to the pole ;And did non care although I feltThe strength go ebbing from my psyche.
Oh! she has seen your strong immature limbs.And heard your laughter loud and homosexual.And in your voices she has caughtThe reverberation of a faraway twenty-four hours.When adult male was closer to the Earth ;And she has marked you for her quarry.
She feels the old Antaean strengthIn you. the great dynamic roundOf cardinal passions. and she seesIn you the last besieged retreatOf love relentless. lusty. fierce.Love pain-ecstatic. cruel-sweet.
O. brothers mine. take attention! Take attention!The great white enchantress drives out to-night.O. younger brothers mine. beware!Look non upon her beauty bright ;For in her glimpse there is a trap.And in her smiling there is a blight.Writer: Johnson.

SPEECH CHOIRLIVE. LOVE. Laugh
The air current blows ; the drizzle’s droplets on their toes.Underneath the olympian weaponries of a tree dwells the avidity to stand tall. But the grandiose of a tree emerged from shades of a colourful yesteryear.
As tall house trees ab initio sprouted from seeds.as caterpillars undergo metabolism to go glorious butterflies… . We have an inevitable fact that everything has its ain Genesis A low start from which illustriousness originates.
Mozart is honored as the greatest instrumentalist of all clipDa Vinci was known as the most adept creative person of his clip.Albert Einstein is a known mastermind even until our clip.These work forces were child prodigies possessing extreme glare valued for a life-time. Alike these work forces was the immature MCSHS.
A pinpoint of thought flared up in the head of Rigel Devena.He had a vision to construct an building specialized in Science and Technology – an establishment that will instill in immature heads the kernel of cognition and wisdom. A household composed of a solid instruction force.
Bright pupils and most of all. their passion for excellence.
Lo and behold!In the twelvemonth 1996. the one time cloaked dream was unveiled.A 12-student category became into what is now the terra firma of encephalon – Mandaue City Science High School.
It is acquaintance with life that makes clip speed rapidly.When everyday is a measure in the unknown.The yearss are long with assemblage of experience.The school was fresh. it was new.
That immature seed. on a high mountain it was planted and grew. Of class it wasn’t easy. He was so small. so infinitesimal.Neither the trees. nor any animals paid attending to it.But it has to last the changeless conflict between the strong and the weak.
As the clock of life easy ticks. the small seed bit by bit became a delicacy works. Its frail root struggled to stand strong.It takes whatever the conditions brings.If it has any pick at all. it is in seting down its roots every bit profoundly as it perchance can. This was the image of MCSHS as it strived amidst every obstructor. The forces of nature conspired to convey forth a fable.
Its former residence was instead peasant:The pupils had their categoriesAt the bare anteroom of the Mandaue City Comprehensive National High School Just so. intelligence came to our ears and everyone was eager to hear. The one time seedling is now grounding roots in Opao. Mandaue City.
The school has been invariably bombarded with ordeals that tested its strength through clip. Still. it bloomed and reaped fruits of labour.It has been steadfast in populating the dream.
It has earned acknowledgment for being one of the top schools in Mandaue City For it offers nil less than high-class quality instruction. It has aced legion competitions countrywide.
The thrust to outstand was fueled as we bring place decorations from brain-whacking challenges. Such as the MTAP. Damath and Quiz Bowls to call a few.This primera classe school has gained commendations for stand outing non merely in Science jousts But in STEP competitions as the pupils are armored with indispensable life accomplishments. It continues its reign as the supreme titleholder for the Division Schools Press Conference. Due to the virtues received from far and broad.
Mandaue City Science High School became synonymous to excellence. No. that was an understatement. Mandaue City Science High School IS excellece itself.
Many people are gifted with the ability to work with custodies.But this does non prevent utilizing the caput.The capableness to fit the focal point of the head with the spirit of the organic structure is something this turning establishment. more than any other besides has to offer.
The school seeks character. it trains accomplishment.It develops individuality. physiques personality.The power of work. and the power of creativeness – this was our redemption. It has brought us to the really land we stand.Ibabao-Estancia. Mandaue CityThe land of birthrate and exuberant – The terrain of finding. dediciation. duty. vision. nucleus values. and forfeit.
Whether acknowledged or non.the gustatory sensation for established regulations of behavior persists.Along with a deeper hungriness for the better.This is why we ever strive for what is best ; why we hunger for differentiation ;Why we thirst for excellence.
And this is why above its name ;MCSHS wears its tiara of disctinction and laterality.You heard the narrative. A fable has merely been known.A saga now unfolded.Witness the earth’s enlightenment.The 9th cloud of the state.The 7th Eden like no other.
Hear ye. hear ye!Make some noise for this is Mandaue City Science High School – Home of the legendary and airy persons.hypertext transfer protocol: //kathrine1emo. multiply. com/journal/item/16/Speech-Choir-Piece

James Weldon Johnson
AND God stepped out on infinite.And He looked about and said.“I’m lonely—I’ll make me a universe. ”
And far as the oculus of God could seeDarkness covered everything.Blacker than a 100 midnightsDown in a cypress swamp.
Then God smiled.And the light broke.And the darkness rolled up on one side.And the light stood reflecting on the other.And God said. “That’s good! ”
Then God reached out and took the visible radiation in His custodies.And God rolled the visible radiation around in His custodiesUntil He made the Sun ;And He set that sun a-blazing in the celestial spheres.And the visible radiation that was left from doing the SunGod gathered it up in a polishing ballAnd flung it against the darkness.Spangling the dark with the Moon and stars.Then down betweenThe darkness and the visible radiationHe hurled the universe ;And God said. “That’s good! ”
Then God himself stepped down—And the Sun was on His right manus.And the Moon was on His left ;The stars were clustered about His caput.And the Earth was under His pess.And God walked. and where He stepHis footfalls hollowed the vales outAnd bulged the mountains up.
Then He stopped and looked and sawThat the Earth was hot and wastes.So God stepped over to the border of the universeAnd He spat out the seven seas ;He batted His eyes. and the lightnings flashed ;He clapped His custodies. and the booms rolled ;And the Waterss above the Earth came down.The chilling Waterss came down.
Then the green grass sprouted.And the small ruddy flowers blossomed.The pine tree pointed his finger to the sky.And the oak spread out his weaponries.The lakes cuddled down in the hollows of the land.And the rivers ran down to the sea ;And God smiled once more.And the rainbow appeared.And curled itself around His shoulder.
Then God raised His arm and He waved His manusOver the sea and over the land.And He said. “Bring Forth! Bring Forth! ”And quicker than God could drop His manus.Fishs and poultryAnd animals and birdsSwam the rivers and the seas.Roamed the woods and the forests.And divide the air with their wings.And God said. “That’s good! ”
Then God walked around.And God looked aroundOn all that He had made.He looked at His Sun.And He looked at His Moon.And He looked at His small stars ;He looked on His universeWith all its living things.And God said. “I’m lonely still. ”
Then God sat downOn the side of a hill where He could believe ;By a deep. broad river He sat down ;With His caput in His custodies.God thought and thought.Till He thought. “I’ll do me a adult male! ”
Up from the bed of the riverGod scooped the clay ;And by the bank of the riverHe kneeled Him down ;And there the great God AlmightyWho lit the Sun and fixed it in the sky.Who flung the stars to the most far corner of the dark.Who rounded the Earth in the center of His manus ;This Great God.Like a mammy bending over her babe.Kneeled down in the dustLaboring over a ball of clayTill He shaped it in His ain image ;
Then into it He blew the breath of life.And adult male became a life psyche.Amons. Amons.
