"Voyage within you, on the fabled ocean,
And you will find the Southern Continent,
Quiro's vision - the hidalgo heart
And mythical Australia, where reside
All things in the imagined counterpart.
It is your land of similes: the wattle
Scatters the pollen of the doubting heart;
The flowers are wide-awake;
the air gives ease.
There you come home; the magpies
call you Jack
And whistle like larrikins at you
from the trees"
