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
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH

A FRIEND FOR THE FINDING
TO SEE EYE TO EYE
THE TRUTH AND THE REASON
THE REAL ANSWER WHY ?
BRINGING TO CAUSE
THE PROMISE AS SUCH
THE WEALTH AND THE WISDOM
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH

TO GIVE WITHOUT MEASURE
TO THE ONE GOD DIVINE
WARM WORDS OF WELCOME
OPEN HEARTS AND MINDS
TO LEARN EVERY LESSON
TO KNOW THE TRUE SCORE
LIFE IS FOR LIVING
TO ALWAYS FIND MORE

GIVING TO GO THERE
FOR THE SIGHT AND THE SONG
A PLACE IN THE PASTURE
A PLACE TO BELONG
OUT OF THE COLD WIND
OUT OF THE BLUE
A PICTURE , A POSTCARD
A DREAM COMING TRUE

A FRIEND FOR THE FINDING
TO SEE EYE TO EYE
THE TRUTH AND THE REASON
THE REAL ANSWER WHY ?
BRINGING TO CAUSE
TO PROMISE AS SUCH
THE WEALTH AND THE WISDOM
OF WHAT MEANS SO MUCH .
