The Bushrangers: A play in five acts

And other poems


Charles Harpur

A STREAMLET is a bright and beauteous creature
    In some wide desert, where it keeps apart
        Of each wayfarer’s heart:
The Star of Evening is a gracious feature,
    Instinct as ’twere with all the love that eyes
        Have looked through at the skies.

And hence one emblems in its beauteous being
    The memory of a Joy that in my heart
        Flowed gratefully apart;
The other, to my spiritual seeing,
    The perpetuity of Love’s white grace
        Yet in some heavenly place.
