Salient. Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Volume 31 Number 15, July 9, 1968



(25% Yeats, 75% Wool)

I have sgpread my dreams around your feet.
Tread softly, as kings have winked here,
and noble men scrambled up trees,
birdsnesting; for you tread of my dreams.

The mingling waters soothe the weary
who lie, limbs outstretched, on my living velvet
Their fingers singing on my verdage, they stroke out the rumnastic sounds of dreamland.

Above the fishpound on the Castle Ridge—look down over my spreading pastures,
My shorn oaks, My weeping willows and sigh to the east, for there the sun rises over Bramble Hill.
