Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 18, No. 1. March 3, 1954
Thou shalt be greater than the city that lies
Beneath thee; though the wave curve tender foam
Athwart her beach, thou hast a fairer home
Where mountains watch thee with eternal eyes.
Within the 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 forsee
Regeneration, humbleness and faith
Won through the yoke of Pallas, thou wilt be
Memory for those who built thy-walls when death
Had given them else forgotten solitude.
