Travelling through the bush in the Cooktown District

The road is rough - but to my feet
Softer than is the city street;
And then the trees! - how beautiful
She-oak and gum - how fresh and cool!
From The Call of the Bush by Dora Wilcox,
born Mary Theodora Joyce Wilcox (1873-1953) poet and playwright.
