Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 1, No. 19 September 6, 1938



Gold-lit harbour waters shimmering in the dusk
shivering from the threatening hills marching in the skies
and flaunting misty banners streaming to the clouds
whence sea-gull couriers warn the waves with sadly-shrilling cries.

Drumming waves in all the bays sound the deep alarm
till all the ocean-empire's might is thundering on the sands
whitely-crested lances marching on for ever
all valiant for battle with their age-old foe—the lands.
