CLEVEDON VERSES: 6. PER OMNIA DEUS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: What moves at cardiff, how a man
Last Line: The true god rushes in the salmon.
Alternate Author Name(s): Brown, T. E.
Subject(s): God; Salmon

What moves at Cardiff, how a man
At Newport ends the day as he began,
At Weston what adventure may befall,
What Bristol dreams, or if she dream at all,
Upon the pier, with step sedate,
I meditate --
Poor souls! whose God is Mammon --
Meanwhile, from Ocean's gate,
Keen for the foaming spate,
The true God rushes in the salmon.
