Comments about Tebatjo Malaka
Tho' some have called thee parent of despair,
Inventor of suicide, and gloom's lair;
And tho' much bynames thou hast been given,
—depression, boredom, or foe of heaven;
Fair solitude, thou art not so accused.
Thou, thou didst introduce me to myself,
—Unread book hears'd upon a dusty shelf;
Thus, passing through the din of the riot,
Aloft life's fuss into realms of quiet,
I saw the unseen, and sweet peace unbruised.
