Did Homer sing of Amazons who stopped the madness of the World
When on an isle of dream they stood
And swam until the Sea would end
And Earth let drop its empty cups
And drank its fill of bitterness.
What shall we drink when thirst is gone
To quaff at morning of the dawn
But brimming dregs of life we’ve known
The season’s wind and dewy storm,
Then shall we gather olden songs
To sing in silence of the dawn.
