FREEDOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
FREEDOM. Kevel ! Glory in your most delighted soaring, Far up in the blue, beloved of the skies, On the earth beneath the burdened trees ignoring, Stretching fingers out and up for f rpprlnm's nrizn. Pity me, frail bird, with lifted eyes of yearning, Hungrily I watch you from my (shackled place; Prison bars hold fast and chains my heart are burning, And the earth has stamped her bond* age on my face. Hush you, beating heart rebellious. One day boldly Will 1 snap your chains, set free your soug suppressed j Wand'ring gay at will, there's none on earth shall hold me, Free as you small bird, towards the sunset west FRANCES GAKTHE,
"A BROWN ROAD WINDING." [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 30 January 1930
-A BKOWN ROAD WINDING.' Cher the city the sun is shining, golden sun of a slumberous noon, Spinning lights, ;midst the violets nod ding, rifting the shades on a blue lagoon. Over thu garden a south wind flutters, till the clinging creepers bend and e way; Fair dreams waking of a summer's splendour, and a brown road gleam ing lar away. i A brown road gleamning like tiher ribbon, 'neath the sad belars and gum trees tall, When c^er.the world the sun is rising. and its pallid beams o'er bush trees fall, Where magpies warble their early matins, a* blue mitts out of the ranges fade, And Jichen rocks in their greeu robes sparkle, with dew drops bright in a shady glade. Close to me here in a city garden, flowers are heavy with perfume rare, Floating along as the summer breezes, ripple the froth of the daisies fair; The sparkling bay to the eastward glimmers, like a sapphire blue when sunbeams play ; But I only see a brown road winding, and shifting shades in the bush to-day. A brown road wi...
