That want is here a stranger, and that misery's unknown;
For where the nearest suburb and the city proper meet

Knocked Up

I'm lyin' on the barren ground that's baked and cracked with drought,
And dunno if my legs or back or heart is most wore out;
I've got no spirits left to rise and smooth me achin' brow --

A Prouder Man Than You

If you fancy that your people came of better stock than mine,

Outstanding poem, " The Roaring Days" . Has to be one of Henry's best. So stirring and it paints a picture of what life would have been on the goldfields of middle-to-late 1800s Australia.

With his fierce rival (AB [Banjo] Paterson) Henry was Australia's greatest poet. He wrote about the Australia of his day and as we say now 'he's been there and done that'. Consider " The Roaring Days" and " Tambaroora Jim" as examples of his work.
