  G'day  

  kandertal  

Out the back of the Great Dividing Range

in the dry land where the emu runs

I grow in thickets where the cattle graze.

They burn me or spray me

or tear me out with a blade-plough,

my thorns do not protect me from them.

But covered in the fruiting years

with heavy crops of small strong citrus

    I   will   stand   adorned

  brigalow   bright
