Lil' Blissy (I See You)


‘'Little boy! '' she calls
Or by that I should not call you?
Visit me you should
And now command!
Ha! You would've still been here
Had it been a trumpet's call

Love, I see in those eyes
But love, she denies
Words uttered
Words shelled in sweet hives
And in my eyes life
In her faster runs

I see you my beloved
Here in my heart and everywhere
And even from a day's journey away
I see you also my love
Should all maidens be clad in black
And the suns cease its burn
I see you

Poem of the Day

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;
