Poem a Day 2

Amor Humanae Gloriae

In glory clarity is seen; in fame,
a mirror raised to mind, the face is found.
How sweet the crown of well-reputed name,
how fair approval, like to scenic ground!
Not knowing only -- known, and known around
with toast and praise; we thus ourselves adorn
with words on words, and sounds of meaning shorn.
