Poem of the Month: Alere Flammam

Alere Flammam


LCI Alere Flammam, nourish the flame,

The credo of my school, Lisgar by name

The flame within, the halls, classrooms and walls, engulfed in din

This institute old and grand hath seen firsthand, cool autumn days,

in which the trees ablaze shed their treasure from way up high, landing gently on passers by

Hath seen brave young lads go off to war to walk the hallways, nevermore

Hath felt laughter, music, confessions of romantic temptations, across the generations

The flame burns.

– Daniel Nikoula
