Stuart


In Semaphore Stuart's is quite a well known face
And he feels so much at home in the old place
His late dad was a sailor from old Aberdeen
One who in his lifetime much of the world had seen.

For one in his late forties in his hair little gray
July the second it is his birthday
He does not have any plans to take a wife
For he is one who enjoys the single life.

In the A F L the Carlton Club his favourite team
He hopes the Blues will again reign supreme
He care not if they are based in another State
Each win they have he is glad to celebrate.

So down to earth and untainted by conceit
And as nice a person as one could wish to meet
He is happy to live near the ocean shore
And he is one who does love Semaphore.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
