The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1925

A Landscape (Ovid)

A Landscape (Ovid)

Beneath the sunny hillside stood a grove
Of holm-oaks in whose leafy boughs above,
A multitude of twittering birds lay hid.
Nearby, a meadow emerald amid,
There curled a stream of murmuring water clear.
I sheltered 'neath the leafy boughs for fear
Of noon-day heat which pierced the welcome shade;
Behold! There stood in search of luscious blade
Before me a white cow among the flowers;
Far whiter than new snow which fleeting hours
Of sunshine have yet failed to melt again
And swell the brook a-gurgling down the glen.

R. B. Castle.
