Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 9. June 25, 1947

[Untitled poem by D.]

Within my soul a tree of longing grows.
O hungry rooted tree! Your boughs down hung
Are twined and wreathed with sorrowing.
Twined to the winter of the eayth with tears.
With fallen leaves to chill the silences.
So that head bent, and boughs hung low
Grief may stare through the twilight days,
Unknown, unseen, beyond awareness there.
