c. 6th Century
that in mid career (Davies)
brain grows dizzy
of Megara (c. 6th Century bce), Greek poet
by James Davies (1820-1883)
brain grows dizzy, whirled and overthrown
wine: my senses are no more my own.
ceiling and the walls are wheeling round!
let me try! perhaps my feet are sound.
me retire with my remaining sense,
fear of idle language and offense.
