From Lil Wit to Tiff and Earl,
From weekly meetings and issues,
It is hard to say farewell
Without needing a few tissues.

The Cowl has been a great space
To share thoughts and feelings,
To craft poems and satire,
Alongside great human beings.

Across my five semesters
Of writing for Portfolio
Making people think and laugh
Has been my main goal and my hope.

The Cowl gave me a voice
When I was quiet, even coy.
Writing for Portfolio
Has been one of my greatest joys.
