    Leslie Allan Murray was born in in Nabiac, a village on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia, and spent his Leslie Allan Murray born was the outstanding poet of his generation and one of his country's most influential literary critics. All climates, from tropical to frigid, are included within the continent, but the want of satisfactory watersheds renders it peculiarly liable to long droughts and sudden floods. He had some imagination and poetic faculty of the contemplative order, but the disadvantages of his life were many. James Lionel Michael.

    Stenhouse and Dr. Among the ardent spirits attracted here were J. There are folk long dead, and our hearts would sicken -- We would grieve for them with a bitter pain, If the past could live and the dead could quicken, We then might turn to that life again. Deniehy, Henry Halloran, J. Turning away from poetry in recent years, Wright has written extensively about the environment and the treatment of Aboriginals, and has also become an articulate public defender of these causes.

    Several attempts have been made to maintain magazines and reviews in Sydney and Melbourne, but none of them could compete successfully with the imported English periodicals. Many of the Scottish settlers on the New South Wales coast had been forced out of Scotland by the Highland clearances of the l9th century, and they in turn were among those who dispossessed the Aboriginal Kattang tribe around the Manning valley; in later years Murray's own father was forced off the land by family chicanery. In the mem'ries that throng, There haply shall reach You some echo of song. The little creek takes colour, From summer skies above; Now blue, now gold, Its waters fold The clouds in closest love; But loudly when the thunders roll It sings nor sweet, nor low No lover's song, But sweeps along, How angry -- lovers know!

Anthology of Australian Verse book

And thy health and strength are beyond confessing As the only joys that are worth possessing. Turning away from poetry in recent years, Wright has written extensively about the environment and the treatment of Aboriginals, and has also become an articulate public defender of these causes.

Grey are the plains where the emus pass Silent and slow, with their staid demeanour; Over the dead men's graves the grass Maybe is waving a trifle greener.

She sees in front of her a computer screen of numbers then through a dust-filtered window the land itself. Nothing could conquer that heart of thine. She wrote about the beautiful region known as New England, those who peopled itboth the descendants of white settlers and the Aborigines.

They are flying west, by their instinct guided, And for man likewise is his fate decided, And griefs apportioned and joys divided By a mighty power with a purpose dread. And tho', bright goddess, on the far blue hills, That pour their thousand swift pellucid rills Where Warragamba's rage has rent in twain Opposing mountains, thundering to the plain, No child of song has yet invoked thy aid 'Neath their primeval solitary shade, -- Still, gracious Pow'r, some kindling soul inspire, To wake to life my country's unknown lyre, That from creation's date has slumbering lain, Or only breathed some savage uncouth strain; And grant that yet an Austral Milton's song Pactolus-like flow deep and rich along, -- An Austral Shakespeare rise, whose living page To nature true may charm in ev'ry age; -- And that an Austral Pindar daring soar, Where not the Theban eagle reach'd before.

The words we hear May revolutionize or rear A mighty state. Adam Lindsay Gordon, who had landed in Adelaide in the same year as Henry Kingsley -- -- published a little book of verse in at Mt.

They loosen topsoils that will wash away or blow away, punishing the land for being so old and delicate, and they make walking tracks that run like scars across the bitten-down paddocks stitched with fences while the farmers in their cracked and dried-out boots wait for one good season to make their money green again.

The wheels of time may stand Here in a lonely land, Age after age may pa. For what am I? And the bush hath friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars, And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wondrous glory of the everlasting stars.

A moment on the topmost grade while open fire doors glare, She pauses like a living thing to breathe the mountain air, Then launches down the other side across the plains away To bear that note to "Conroy's sheep along the Castlereagh".

Wine waxes in power in that desolate hour When the glory of love is dead.

Childhood: An Illustrated Anthology of Verse and Prose

Gordon's work cannot be considered as peculiarly Australian in character; but much of it is concerned with the horse, and all of it is a-throb with the manly, reckless personality of the writer. Here, too, have existed hardly any of the conditions which obtained in older communities where great literature arose.

But Ah! Australia was first settled by the British a little more than a century ago, so that we are still a young community. Lionel Michael, Robert Sealy, R. The city folk go to and fro Behind a prison's bars, They never feel the breezes blow And never see the stars; They never hear in blossomed trees The music low and sweet Of wild birds making melodies, Nor catch the little laughing breeze That whispers in the wheat.

Natural resource abundance in Australia played a prominent role in some periods and faded during others, but overall, and contrary to the conventional view of economists, it was a blessing rather than a curse.

We know them but as friends may know, Or they are known beyond the stars. While o'er the watery gleam -- there where its edge Banks the dim vacancy, the topmost sails Of some tall ship, whose hull is yet unseen, Hang as if clinging to a cloud that still Comes rising with them from the void beyond, Like to a heavenly net, drawn from the deep And carried upward by ethereal hands.

When published in book form, their verses met with phenomenal success; Paterson's "The Man from Snowy River" having already attained a circulation of over thirty thousand copies.

The principal literary productions of our first century came from writers who had been born elsewhere, and naturally brought with them the traditions and sentiments of their home country. Their number and success are evidences of the lively interest taken by the present generation here in its native literature.

Where fierce hot winds have set the pine and myall boughs asweep He hails the shearers passing by for news of Conroy's sheep. It might be an idea.
