The Spike or Victoria University College Review 1934

Spike Speaks

Spike Speaks

These thirty years I've seen the ceaseless flow
Of you Vm supposed to represent,
Who steal into Minerva's firmament
And light your Candles from her fire's glow;

. . . .

You've been a world in miniature, you know,
—Nonsense and wisdom curiously blent,
These thirty years.

. . . .

You turn my pages idly and then go
To your appointed tasks, your moment spent—
I chronicle your passing, quite content—
It has been good to view your passing show
These thirty years.

—H. R. Bannister.

The Spike, 1931.
