Early Dawn Birds


I love you, i love you,
But the world doesn't know,
the early dawn birds sing in praise of
the fluttering trees,
peacefully and joyously they sing and sing,
the song of love, the song of joy-
I love you, i love you,
But the world doesn't know.
It says,
When i sing the pleasant,
the world do kiss,
but, oh! when i fail,
they curse me great deal well,
I love you, I love you,
But the world doesn't know.
my nests that rest upon your
muscular branches,
my kids who cry out their first cries,
the dancing leaves that hang upon your trunks,
that's all you have, still-
I love you, I love you,
But the world doesn't know,
the thirsty birds sing
with all their sweat and gratitude,
I love you, I love you,
But the world doesn't know.

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;
