SABCL - Volume 5
I. Short Poems
Many boons the new years make us
But the old world’s gifts were three,
Dove of Cypris, wine of Bacchus,
Pan’s sweet pipe in Sicily.
Love, wine, song, the core of living
Sweetest, oldest, musicalest.
If at end of forward striving
These, Life’s first, proved also best?
