From the 1907 Corolla

Farewell to our hero, in triumph he leaves us,
Honored and blessed be our champion and friend;
Long may his fame, which with glory now wreaths us,
Lead on to success even unto the end,
     Heaven send him help anew,
     Earth lend him wisdom too,
Greatly to prosper and proudly to grow,
     While every hill and glen
     Sends our shout back again,
B. Auxford Burks! Alabama! Ho! Ho!

Long shall old Auburn, with groans and with madness,
Remember our half-back who played them so fast;
Long shall Sewanee, with wonder and sadness,
Remember our onslaught of November last.
     Tho this season ends his fight
     Long shall the Auburnite
Think of Burks' tackling with fear and with woe,
     Victory upon victory then,
     Echoes his praise again,
B. Auxford Burks! Alabama! Ho! Ho!
