Vonda Stanley's collection of early Australian bush poems


In early green summer

When deep valleys call,

And softly the little streams

Gurgle and fall,

Down by the pool where the blush lily grows,

The misty wild lilac dreamily blows.

On pale meadow grasses

With star daisies pied,

On sad rosy fuchsias

That droop by her side,

Floats beauty as light as the kiss of a faun

And hyacinth cool as the fingers of dawn.
