To Saint Jude
Hard on the scholar
Makes him a wordsmith
Teaching him to perfect his lines
To take his thoughts
Like a child sit I
To drink at his feet
From his well of inestimable value
From the wisdom of the sages of yore;
The guiding star he is
That points the sojourner
The way and like the Muse
In the neophyte that craves
For wisdom and for sense
In a senseless world.
