Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 21, No. 1. March 13, 1958

Victoria University

Victoria University

Thou shalt be greater than the City that lies

Beneath thee; though the wave curve tender foam

Athwart her beach, thou has a fairer home.

Where mountains watch thee with eternal eyes.

Within thy sanctuary men shall prize

The charm of Greece, the majesty of Rome.

And science through thy starry-circled dome

Shall trail her robe of unimagined dyes.

As thou hast gathered round thee all that brood

Of sacrifice for knowledge, who foresee

Regneration, humbleness and faith

Won through the yoke of Pallas, thou will be

Memory for those who built thy walls, when Death

Had given them else forgotten solitude.

Herbert Church.
