The following are poems that I have written on either philosophical themes or ones that are related to the ancient world in some way.
An Epigram for Daphne, Loved by Apollo
In the Vale of Tempe, ancient voices sang
For a Laurel wreath on a sacred plain.
They praised the noble in the natural,
Where even wild nature once became the same.
Did the god, at last, win her over then?
I doubt the noble sun will forget her name.
Epigram on a luxurious ivy plant
-To Aristotle the Stagirite
With delicate leaves full of green sunlight,
An ivy plant grows and flows in warm delight.
In a window, facing the morning sun,
It unfurls its moistened leaves all one by one,
Holding the moisture of now departed night,
In which is drawn a brighter inflected light.
And thus does sensuous nature grow:
Growing as nature’s pleasure shows.
