THE BALLAD OF THE EMEU. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

THE BALLAD OF THE EMEU. O say, have you seen at the Willows so green, So charming and rurally true,- A singular bird, with manner absurd, Which they call the Australian Emeu ? Have you Ever seen this Australian Emeu? It trots all around with its head on theground, Or erects it quite out of your view; And the ladiesall cry, when its figure they spy, O, what a sweet pretty Emeu ! Oh! do Just look at that lovely Emeu I One day to this spot, when the weather was hot, Came Matilda Hortense Fortescue; And beside her there came a youth of high name Augustus Florell Montague: The two Both loved that wild, foreign Emeu. With two loaves of bread then they fed it, instead Of the flesh of the white cockatoo, [hood Which once was its food in that wild neighbor Where ranges the sweet Kangaroo; That too Is game for the famous Emeu I Old saws and gimlets but its appetite whets Like the world-famous bark of Peru ; Theie's;nothing so hard that the bird w!ll discard, And nothing its taste will eschew,...

Poetry. UNSATISFIED. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

Po e t r y. S UNSATISFIED.' :We sigh for the sunset colors, Passing away.so fleet;. And lo t the tangible earth flowers, Can be gathered around our feet. We gaze upon the purple mountain, S And yearn its ascent to climb, As if nature spread around us, Were less fair-and sublime. We wish with deepest longing, For the music of the spheres, Though here the birds' sweet warbling Is ever in our ears. Thus we sigh for the far off blessing It is never our fate to meet.. And refuse to grasp those pressing All day around our feet. Oh ! when will this heart hunger So foolish be supplied ? This ardent ceaseless longing Entirely satisfied ? When the sweet breeze elysian This spirit sad elates: When this tear blinded vision Beholds the pearly gates. When the Most Holy image, Has stamped the sin freed soul Then shall the ceaseless longing, For ever from it roll. CHRts. HOUCHTON, Footscray.
