The Abbot Circle 19 2 1 3n tije arben of IBabplon A poet once did wander into many foreign lands. One day he came to the town of Babylon, to the golden towers and turrets of the famous town of Baby- lon. And here he saw the hanging gardens that were the wonder of the world. Sitting in the garden he saw the princess, and his heart turned to hers as a lily to the dew. She was clad in a gown of woven silk as white as the clouds and as blue as the sky. Her flowing golden hair hung over her shoulders, catching the sun- beams in its silken meshes, and her dark blue eyes were full of laughter as she sat among the roses. And the poet drew forth his lyre and sang a song of life — a song of love, and youth, and joy to the princess in the hanging garden. His graceful figure was full of vigor and happiness as he stood in the sunlight in the streets of Babylon. The princess smiled and threw him a red rose, fresh and sparkling with the dew. Then she turned away and forgot the poet standing below, but went about her tasks. And the world passed by and heeded him not. That night the poet came again to the hanging garden where the princess stayed. He lifted his head to the cold, still stars and wept. Oh, life was cruel, life was sad! Then, on the wings of a little wind that scattered the rose petals over his face, there came a song from heaven. He lifted his lyre and sang a song of life -- a song of sorrow and deep-throb- bing mystery — a song that brought tears to the eyes and a dim far-away longing to the heart, but one that made the whole world stop and listen to its wonder and its beauty. Then down from the hanging garden came the princess to him, carrying an armful of roses, and together they walked, hand in hand, into the starlit night. Katherine Gage ' 22 54
