The Boy Aurobindo with Mr. Drewett1

A deep scholar of Latin Mr.
Compelled by a white desire of joy,
Pours his knowledge like a sparkling shower
Into the brain of a tender boy.

The brave, inborn talent of Aurobindo
Creates a sudden wide surprise,
And there's a glisten in the tutor's gaze:
"O knowledge-flame!
high ever you rise."
