H.V.H.T. by Katharine Susannah Prichard

To you, all these wild weeds
and wind flowers of my life,
I bring, my lord,
and lay them at your feet;
they are not frankincense
or myrrh,
but you were Krishna, Christ and Dionysus
in your beauty, tenderness and strength.

From: Prichard, Katharine Susannah, Child of the Hurricane: An Autobiography, 1963, Angus and Robertson: Sydney, p. 261.
