The Poetry of John Syrmis
Maleny Queensland Australia

THE RHYME OF REBIRTH
WHEN ONE UNDERSTANDS
THE POETRY OF POWER
ANTHEM
WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE
THE DREAM CREATION
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH
TO SING THE SAME SIMPLE SONG
ON A TUESDAY AFTERNOON
IN THE COUNTRY OR THE TOWN

The true and equal score .

I called to wisdom passing , will you save us from the war
will you understand all life as such , to witness what it’s for
will you save the starving children and bring equality for all
with peace the pastures of your soul , for all to heed the call ?

And will you walk upon the water , heal the sick and lame
and bring knowledge known to everyone , with one heart , one will the same
and will you give enlightened spirit and worthiness to wealth
and unity to the scheme of things free of fear and stealth ?

And will you bring back the makers glory to where it was before
free of greed and free of dread
the true and equal score ?

I called to wisdom passing , will you save us heart and soul
will you call compassion to believe and make our half lives whole
will you mention promised purpose , with judgment real and true
with love the echo all around , to let the light shine through ?

Will you rise up in the image with your wealth in real reprieve
for eternity and all it means , to sow with wisdom’s seed
and will you bring the dawn to waken , in a time and place to suit
with beauty in the thought to share the word that’s absolute ?

To bring back the makers glory to where it was before
free of greed and free of dread
the true and equal score ?
