Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 8, No. 9. July 11, 1945

[Untitled poem by Mezz published in Salient Vol. 8, No. 9. July 11, 1945]

Ripples of sea move gently up blank beach
Shifting a grain of sand
And slip back again
Then, eternally., another ripple comes.
And the ripples were love, and
I was part of each
More recent ripple.

But now no longer shall I move
Near stagnant shore and smooth brown stones;
Now to float or dive in clear deep sea
Away from all but water.
