SABCL - Volume 5
I. Short Poems
Perfect thy motion
Perfect thy motion ever within me,
Master of mind.
Grey of the brain, flash of the lightning,
Brilliant and blind,
These thou linkest, the world to mould,
Writing the thought in a scroll of gold
Tablet of brain thou hast made for thy writing,
Calmly thou writest or full of thy grandeur
Flushed as with wine,
Then with a laugh thou erasest the scroll,
Bringing another, like waves that roll
And sink supine.
