    Notion formed by perseverance
    Perfection sought by extraction's interference,
    Machined all the while, all the while to fashion
    'lyrics with beats like the heart-beats of passion'

    Diluted and diminished
    No consequence contracted
    The truth in its image
    At source originated
    Hard worked hands sated. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
