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
YOU WISHED.

THE WINDS ARE BLOWING COLD AND FREE
ACROSS THESE FIELDS OF DESTINY
YOU WISHED THIS TIME TO FIND YOUR WAY
DON'T YOU WISH YOU'D SOMETHING MORE'TO SAY?
HARD WON DREAMS
HARD WON HEARTS TO FIND
A PLACE FAR FROM THE MILLING CROWD
A PLACE WITHIN YOUR MIND

DEEP FOREST TO THE SHINING SEA
MOUNTAINS HIGH ROCKS AND SAND
ONE FLOWER IN THE FIELD OF HOPE
A PLACE TO BE TO UNDERSTAND

RIVERS RUSHING TO THE OCEAN WIDE
LIFE THE DREAM AND MYSTERY
THE CHANGE TO COME THE SOUND OF ONE
THE BEATING OF A DIFFERENT DRUM
IN THE MISTY MORNING CALL

THE WORLD IS TURNING SLOW AND FAST
ONE SPECK IN SPACE AND DISTANCE VAST
YOU WISHED THIS TIME TO FIND YOUR WAY
DONT YOU WISH YOU'D SOMETHING MORE TO SAY?

HARD WON GOAL KEEP ON TRYING
HARD WON TRUTH TO SEEK AND FIND
A PLACE TO STAY SOMETHING TO SHARE
A JOURNEY DEEP WITHIN YOUR

CRYSTAL CLEAR RUSHING STREAMS
MEADOW HILL AND HEDGEROW
A DREAMER IN THE DAWN OF MAN
A PLACE TO BE WHERE WISDOM GROWS

HARD WON WORLD
HARD WON SONG TO SING
ONE FLOWER IN THE FIELD OF HOPE
WHITE DOVE ON THE WING
THE WINDS ARE BLOWING COLD AND FREE
ACROSS THESE FIELDS OF DESTINY
YOU WISHED THIS TIME TO FIND YOUR WAY
DONT YOU WISH YOU'D SOMETHING MORE TO SAY?
