Young Elijah Madden

Young Elijah Madden from Kaniva in Victoria on the road to Bordertown
At the Australian busking championships in Mortlake took his first step towards renown
By winning the Australian busking championship he was the judge's choice
A future top class entertainer with a lovely singing voice.

All were very worthy finalists but it was Elijah's day
He was the choice of the judges and their's was the final say
He sung Bobby Darin's 'Mack the knife' of him the late Bobby would feel proud
The winner by the judges and the favourite of the crowd.

The Mortlake Buskers Festival gets bigger every year
And of the year 07 winner in the future we will hear
Yet all of the other finalists winners in their own category were winners in every way
And perhaps far greater success ahead for them does lay.

At the Mortlake Buskers Festival a great day had by all
A memory for to cherish and a great memory to recall
And a young man from Kaniva took one giant step towards fame
The 07 Australian Busking champion Elijah Madden is his name.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
