“My Merced”

In the soil a dream was planted
In the rich earth, just a seed
The ground was tilled so tenderly
To cultivate – the best in me

And the seed grew to a garden
As far as I can see
She welcomed me with open arms
That gave life to my dreams

Her lantern’s light
Shines so bright
For the world to see

My Merced, UC Merced
My Merced…
From a seed
