HomerO peerless poet, a wild mystery has veiled
Thy deathless life.
Too little of Truth of Thee
Our mind captures from history’s drowsy core.
Thy vast adventure tales ‘Illiad’, 'Odyssey’,
Are blazing flames of warrior-suns.
Although stone blind, thou wert the light of Greece.
Ever she breathes in thy sea of enormous pride.
