Lesbia Harford

Weekend At Mt. Dandenong

Lesbia Harford was an Australian poet, novelist and political activist.

Frolic mountain winds
Innocent and shy,
Kiss my darling's cheek
As they scurry by.
Little fragrant leaves
With the dawn astir,
Make a million songs
Full of love for her.
Will she wake or sleep
These two nights she'll spend
Up the mountain-side,
My dear truant friend?
