Curiosity - Poem by Mark Sauer
I want to know the Secret Name of Rome,
And the hue of pterodactyl pinion;
To stride the shore where Venus stepped from foam,
And the isle where Circe held dominion.
I want to drink from that sole agate cup
Of Cleopatra's hoard that Augustus wrest;
Or from Lindos' electrum chalice sip,
That was modeled on Trojan Helen's breast.
I want to know what song the Sirens sang
And the name Achilles took when hidden;
What poison dripped from the Hydra's fang,
And to name the angel guarding Eden.
Of all our God-instilled yearnings, I think
This is sweetest, whether I thirst, or drink.
