    A nice poem conceiving so innocently in search of a lost traveller. I look up to this like not many hearts may be took away some part of our heart in a short period of time though we remember them at last of our breath somewhere in our hearts (Report) Reply

    Oh the pathos in this poem and such strong desire for there to be good reason for a follow up work... (Report) Reply

    sounds like a bit of a 'Titanic' love affair....so sweet and tender...it's amazing how one can connect with someone in such a short time....yet some still will not believe in love at first sight...and now the 'Internet Love' some not even seeing faces or hearing voices....to me everything is connected to words and how one relates...why many marriages fail....lack of words and communication...well I'm rattling on here...at any rate this was a wonderful moving poem...thanks for sharing Big Bruv: O) (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
