Send Us Minerva A Wiser Man Than Me - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai
Send us Minerva a wiser man than me
I dreamt to humanity of Immortality
Of Body plus of Soul already:
Send us great goddess from your head
Some wiser man than me beget
More practical and engineering too:
I lit the light; let not the flame-glow
Wither before some turbid winter-thaw:
But catch it while it be, I lighted it.
I meant it to grow, not wither.
I was a dreamer, perhaps, yes, perhaps.
