Summary (IBList user synopsis):

"A Rose for Ecclesiastes" features Gallinger, a world-renowned poet, stationed on Mars to study the Martian languages and learn their history. He learns more than anyone imagined he could in such a short time, and through his translation of the Book of Ecclesiastes into High Martian, inadvertently becomes a saviour to the ancient race -- a victory, of sorts, though it costs Gallinger something very precious (beyond his belief).

Reprinted in The Doors of His Face, the Lamps of His Mouth collection.
