Excerpt from Apples of Istakhar Rosemary More than mere wisdom of the book and pen You taught me, oh my master, in the days When Life's red sun shone on untrodden ways, More than an old-world tongue you taught me then, More than the truth a scholar's lip could tell, Though still your Chaucer only do I see, Your Goldsmith and your Wordsworth speak to me In tones and accents I remember well.
