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

FIELDS OF DAWN


WINDS OF CHANGE AND SEASONS
TIME AND TIDE WILL TELL
ONE DAY AWAY THE REASON
WILL CRACK THE BRITTLE SHELL

SEEING, BEING, HOMEWARD BOUND
ALL POINTS BACK TO ONE
JOURNEYS END BEGINS AGAIN
WHEN DEEPER RIVERS RUN

IIERE'S THE ANSWER HERE AND NOW
SPOKEN AS THE WORD
LOVE THAT'S TRUE , LOVE THAT'S LIGHT
IS SURELY TO BE HEARD

AND THE DREAM OF LIFE AWAKENED
THE TIME AND PLACE TO SUIT
IN FIELDS OF DAWN THE HURT WILL MEND
IN THE PROMISE OF THE TRUTH

AS DUST OF DAYS AND DISTANT
FLAGS FLY IN THE WIND
PAST, GONE PAST AND TURNED TO FUTURE
SONGS AND SOUNDS WITHIN

HEARING , KNOWING , SPEAKING TRUE
THE TIME TO GIVE AND SAY
COMMING BACK AND FLOWING THROUGH
WHATEVER COMES YOUR WAY

HERE'S THE ANSWER TURN THE KEY
OPEN UP THE DOOR
GO ON IN AND COME BACK OUT
AND KNOW YOURSELF FOR SURE

IN THE DREAM OF LIFE AWAKENED
THE TIME AND PLACE. TO SUIT
IN FIELDS OF DAWN THE HURT WILL MEND
IN THE PROMISE OF THE TRUTH.
