    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.

Best Poem of Henry Lawson

After All


The brooding ghosts of Australian night have gone from the bush and town;
My spirit revives in the morning breeze,
though it died when the sun went down;
The river is high and the stream is strong,

The light of passion in dreamy eyes, and a page of truth well read,
The glorious thrill in a heart grown cold of the spirit I thought was dead,
A song that goes to a comrade's heart, and a tear of pride let fall --
And my soul is strong! and the ...

`for'Ard'


It is stuffy in the steerage where the second-classers sleep,
For there's near a hundred for'ard, and they're stowed away like sheep, --
They are trav'lers for the most part in a straight 'n' honest path;
But their linen's rather scanty, an' there isn't any bath --
Stowed away like ewes and wethers that is shore 'n' marked 'n' draft.
But the shearers of the shearers always seem to travel aft;
In the cushioned cabins, aft,
With saloons 'n' smoke-rooms, aft --
