ALAS, AUSTRALIA FAIR These verses written, few will read ~ Please understand They are but

small, newborn seed, No oak tree grand. Two hundred and fifty years now, And yet you still cannot see how You trespass in the raven’s land ~ Please understand! Plundered, looted, rapacious greed; The ugly brand Seared across the Earth ~ callous breed, Soon to be damned. No reasons yet do I perceive Why for this land you do not grieve. Windswept footsteps pass through sand. Please, understand… Inge Meldgaard 2011
