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 DREAM CREATION

THE LAST IS FIRST , THE FIRST THE LAST
SO GOES THE WHEEL OF LIFE
SO GOES THE DREAM CREATION
ALONG ITS MERRY FLIGHT

FIRST IT WASN’T THEN IT WAS
EACH DOORWAY OPENS IN
ROUND AND ROUND IT GOES TO END
TO FIND WHERE IT BEGINS

THE FIRST IS LAST , THE LAST THE FIRST
EACH FLOWER WAITS TO BLOOM
SO GOES THE DREAM CREATION
SO GOES THE SIMPLE TUNE

FIRST UNSEEN AND THEN IT’S SEEN
THE CIRCLE GAME OF TRUTH
PLAYED PERFECTION IN THE THOUGHT
FOR ONE AND ALL TO SUIT

THE LAST IS FIRST , THE FIRST THE LAST
SO GOES THE WHEEL OF LIFE
SO GOES THE DREAM CREATION
ALONG ITS MERRY FLIGHT .
