My Home - Poem by Frederick Kesner

In my passing think of me no other
than with a heart emboldened - loved our sunburnt land
that here under the wide expanse of sky
We, from all the globe's corners, 'One Australia, ' cry
this young nation strong, built on dreams and hopes -

In her arms each Australian lad and lass would find
through her seasons, Freedom's encouragement:
that eternal pulse of mateship, fairness and peace
brilliant light shines under her southern skies
guiding our thoughts and hearts homeward to freely roam.
