JUNE 17. I saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift. Ecc.

Ere morning shews his ruddy face,

First breaks the dawn with gentle pace ;

And then, the Sun, the World’s bright eye,

Rises and gradual mounts the sky;

Until at last his fullest ray,

Floods sea and earth with brightest day.

Moral emblems, with aphorisms, adages, and proverbs, of all ages and nations

By Jacob Cats, Richard Pigot

TO AUSTRALIA’S DISCONTENTED.

Look up ! look up ! the sun is bright.

The earth is fresh and green ;

The beauty of a thousand flowers

May everywhere be seen.

We may have left a fairer land.

And flowers of softer hue ;

But wherefore close our eyes to these,

Are they not lovely too ?

To hearts in melody attuned.

All scenes, all lands are fair ;

Bright loveliness on every Bide,

And music everywhere !

The sunshine on the window-pane.

The rosebud on the stem ;

The murmur of the rushing creek

Are notes of joy to them ! – – – –

Ah ! sit not down with folded hands.

Ah ! dash away the tear ;

Waste not your strength in vain lament.

Be  up and doing  here 

Take what the bounty of your God

So richly here has spread.

And learn a lesson from the flowers

On which you daily tread.

Mount Barker. MAUD

Now, all aboard, my sonnies, for the time is slipping past,
We’ve got to make ten miles before the dawn,
Our team’s a spankin’ good ‘un, but they’ve never gone so fast
As they must to make the pace this blessed morn!

And I would part the weeping willows
Hold the birch firm in my hand
Gently stroke the living waters
Whispering to the fertile land
Beams of sunshine shot with silver
Thriving brown and vital hue
Resting land aglow with nature
Dreaming of the ever you

Kevin Gilbert.
