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 POETRY OF POWER

Comes the mirror of thought , the maker of means
comes the truth and tomorrow , in the light of it’s being
comes the freedom and fortune of all it provides
to measure the meaning with the way to abide
Comes the dawn of direction , of wisdom and will
and the poetry of power with the promise fulfilled
and the age of the ageless and the season to share
comes fate and the fine line
to follow it there

With loves river that runs so deep and so clear
comes the call of creation and a world free of fear
comes the answer to echo , the chance and the choice
comes one thought in turning , one mind and one voice
Comes peace and perfection with the passion to prove
comes love and the lesson , the truth we can’t loose
comes destiny’s dawn and the making of man
comes the one that’s eternal , the last rock to stand

With the journey to wonder and the right of reprieve
comes the balance of beauty with the purpose perceived
comes the endurance to earn the treasure that’s told
comes faith and fulfilment as the story unfolds
Comes the depth and dimension , the song of the same
comes the poetry of power where the sole hope remains
comes the time of the timeless and the lesson to share
comes fate and the fine line
to follow it there .
