Great Greek Genius


Sophocles! Sophocles!
The Great Greek Genius
The master of his dramatic art
I wonder if such men as you
Still litter the earth with such art
That makes the world adore you
I am so sorry
The vibration of this literary lorry
Earths my mystic strength
To make better eulogy of your creative strength
But worry not
Sleep on in the earth and worry not
For forever you shall live
If men still live

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
