Description: This poem by an Australian author was set during a period where the composer made a point of seeking out poetry from his native country. It's a fairly old-fashioned poem, even for the period it was written, so the Stanford-like musical language used seemed appropriate. Choirs are invited to perform it with or without piano accompaniment.
