FOUR CYCLES: A CENTENNIAL ODE. Prepared in commemoration of the centennial anniversary of Pickaway County The Poem is descriptive of Circleville, the county seat. MAY LOWE. PRELUDE. The grape vine and the sycamore Cast shadows long and deep, On the surface of the river Near whose banks the thousands sleep — Men of mystery, who from silence Of the dim past settled here, Wrought their mighty deeds of valor, Left a record written clear Of their learning and their prowess, In the circle and the square; Left a name for future builders, In the circle and the square.
