WATER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian Home Companion and Band of Hope Journal — 25 February 1860
WATER. _A_ - Tincn« is a liquid purr and bright, 1 Distilled in regions of the t-kk-s, 'Mid rainbow bowers, where rosy light Paints it with all her faires dies ; Clear and transparent as the day, On fleecy clouds it floats along, Reflecting each refulgent ray That falls ils crystal drops among. "Winged on the wind it downward bends It's flight on embasses of love, Arrayed in pearls ; to Earth descends, A blessing bearing from above ; Lo ! as it leaves its native skies With dewy freshness sweetly crowned, The flowers to welcome it arise, And verdure clothes the landscape round. The birds their cheerful chorals raise, The flocks drink of the cooling Btream, While plenty wakes the nation's praise, And grateful Nature joins the theme¡ Pure and refreshing from the spring, Let us enjoy the blessing given ; Our heartfelt tribute we will bring Of thanks and gratitude to heaven. J. B. K., brunswick.

Yet one of earth's heart romances was progressing there, such as stamp jupon young faces wistful looks, seeking 'sadly for the unattainable, or illumine them with joy that the sternest sorrow could not crush away with its most iron shod heel. At the fence, and on the inner side of the yard, stood a young, lovely girl. Her print dress was pinned up, her bare arms were streaming with suds from the wash-tub. Turn away with distaste if...
