The Oath of Eureka


The workers of Kembla, those leaders of men,
Those leaders of deed as in thought.
They challenged the might of the pound and the yen,
And there at the 'Dalfram' they fought
The cause of the Chinese distraught.
And still marching onward,
With gaze lifted sunward,
The call of Eureka is caught.
Democracy thrills at that message of yore,
The vow of Eureka has echoed once more.

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
