  • POEM: No Foe Shall Gather Our Harvest by Dame Mary Gilmore (10/13/2004 4:22:00 PM)

    I remember reading the poem at school and being overwhelmed by the patriotism is exudes.

    Mary Gilmore is representative of an Australia long gone; an Australia which truly saw itself as a new experiment in democracy and had no doubt about its superiority not only over those nations to our North but over the 'old and tired' nations of Europe.

    To 'sit on the stockyard rail' is a metephor for visiting as a friend.

    I truly love this poem and my chest swells and my eyes water when I read it
