Voyage and Carriage


When flood of stream
On your path cross
It invites you form an encounter
In the eyes of the storm
Is the way to go
Count not the leading
For it is yet another voyage
A sail of discovery
For alas you’ll come ashore
Are you lone in the desert?
Stay there and learn all that’s
For it’s your stepping stones experience
And it brings out the man inside
The flood is the path
The stream the carriage
They shall lead you home
Turbulent the sea may seem
Calmness is the sure end.

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;
