Treasure Island

Archibald Thomas Strong

(30 December 1876 – 2 September 1930 / South Yarra, Melbourne)

Australia to England

By all the deeds to Thy dear glory done,
By all the life blood spilt to serve Thy need,
By all the fettered lives Thy touch hath freed,
By all Thy dream in us anew begun;
By all the guerdon English sire to son
Hath given of highest vision, kingliest deed,
By all Thine agony, of God decreed
For trial and strength, our fate with Thine is one.

[Hata Bildir]
