Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 10, No. 10. July 16, 1947

Dark Eyes Are Deceiving

Dark Eyes Are Deceiving

Fear dark eyes for always scheming
Deludes the innocent in his hopes.
Illusion born in wistful dreaming
Life's precious hours in yesterday enropes.

Heed not a woman's glances, brother,
They are twice dangerous than the snakes
Luring thee a deignful lover
In her net of beauty she awaits.

Plucks a rose the Envious for its beauty
Crushed beneath the feet—turns dust within an hour.
Ignoble is a woman's wilful duty
Who cares! There's many a flower.

Lashes droop like" mystic fans appealing
Deludes the vision of the inner sight.
Be thou wise and in thy dealing
Love a woman for a night.

Omar Hjumas.
