    This woman's poetry helped save my life when I was young...many years ago.
    Looking for an extraordinary poem she wrote beginning with...I have sat down by the river with you in mind.... and ends with.....Now I accept you shadow I change you we are one I must enclose a darkness since I contain the sun.
    (or something like that) .

    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

Best Poem of Judith Wright


The blacksmith's boy went out with a rifle
and a black dog running behind.
Cobwebs snatched at his feet,
rivers hindered him,
thorn branches caught at his eyes to make him blind
and the sky turned into an unlucky opal,
but he didn't mind.
I can break branches, I can swim rivers, I can stare out
any spider I meet,
said he to his dog and his rifle.

The blacksmith's boy went over the paddocks
with his old black hat on his head.
Mountains jumped in his way,
rocks rolled down on him,
and the old crow cried, You'll soon be dead.
And the rain came ...

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
