    I am reading SOUTH OF MY DAYS, a bio on JW by Veronica Brady. I like the sincerity, warmth and humanity of her poems- she carried her messages across most impressively- without affectation or falsely elevated emotions- she was a poet of the people just as Wordsworth was- there's an echo of Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson's I think. I shall be reading more poems of hers. I live in Melb- music and poetry are my passions

    It is a good poem, i had to read it as an english assignment for class...
    Poetry isn't really my thing but 'The Sanctuary' and 'The Surfer' by Judith Wright really caught my attention...

Best Poem of Judith Wright

Request To A Year

If the year is meditating a suitable gift,
I should like it to be the attitude
of my great- great- grandmother,
legendary devotee of the arts,

who having eight children
and little opportunity for painting pictures,
sat one day on a high rock
beside a river in Switzerland

and from a difficult distance viewed
her second son, balanced on a small ice flow,drift down the current toward a waterfall
that struck rock bottom eighty feet below,

while her second daughter, impeded,
no doubt, by the petticoats of the day,
stretched out a ...

The Old Prison

The rows of cells are unroofed,
a flute for the wind's mouth,
who comes with a breath of ice
from the blue caves of the south.

O dark and fierce day:
the wind like an angry bee
hunts for the black honey
in the pits of the hollow sea.
