Treasure Island

beyond the soul


beyond the soul

my mind snails beyond the soul
like a soul over the seeds of life,
my soul calms beyond the jaw
like emotions of an innocent child,
my thoughts dwell beyond the law
of gravity, walks in the wild,
my body dies beyond the sore
like a hidden toe to the blind,
my tree falls over the shadow
like mantle from the core as i explore,
my life greens over desert vines
like an ancient traveler’s horse,
my heart lightens its soul
to a path like moonlight over skies beyond the soul.

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,
