Here you will find the Poem An Anthem for the Australasian League of poet Charles Harpur
SHALL we sing of Loyalty To the far South?s fiery youth? Yea?but let the pæan be Of loyalty to God and Truth: To Man, to progress, and to all The free things, nobly free, Of which their loved Australia shall The golden cradle be. Hark! her star-eyed Destinies Pour their voices o?er the seas? Hither, to the Land of Gold, All who would be free! Here a diadem behold For immortal Liberty! Not for Old World queens and kings, Villain Slavery?s outworn things! Shall we sing of Loyalty In this new and genial Land? Yea?but let the pæan be Of loyalty to Love?s command, To Thought, to Beauty, and to all The glorious Arts that yet In golden Australasia shall Like chrysolites be set.
