    I only recently discovered this poet, and don't know how it's taken me so long. 'The Bees' is lovely example of his work. Several more of his poems published in 'Australian Poetry in the Twentieth Century', (William Heinemann Australia,1991) . I particularly liked 'The Prisoners' and 'Yoola and the Seven Sisters'

The Ruined Homestead

White birds, frightened from silver grass,
whose blood-rose breasts and wings are thrown
like petals settling down the pass,
flower the ruined homestead’s stone.

Rise from the fallen walls and scream,
crested, from the stark dead gum;
shatter the crystal of the morning’s dream
where I, across your landscape, come.
