Give love, and love to your life will flow,

A strength in your utmost need;

Have faith and a score of hearts will show

Their faith in your word and deed

For life is the mirror of king and Slave,

‘Tis just what we are and do;

Then give to the world the best you have,

And the best will come back to you.

                                Madeline Bridges.


Better Than Gold


Better than grandeur, better than gold,

Than rank and titles, a thousandfold,

Is a health body, a mind at ease,

And simple pleasures that always please;

A heart that can feel for another’s woe,

And share his joys with a genial glow,

With sympathies large enough to infold

All men as brothers, is better than gold.


Better than gold is a thinking mind

That in the realm of books can find

A treasure surpassing Australian ore,

And live with the great and good of yore;

The sage’s lore, and the poet’s lay,

The glories of empires passed away,

The world’s great drama will thus unfold

And yield a pleasure better than gold.

                                                      Alexander Smart




Bring Back My School

Days To Me


When beautiful school days are over

And grown men and women are we,

Tho’ gone, we will think of them ever-

O, bring back my school days to me!


We long for our playmates of childhood

Who played with us day after day,

And little we dreamt how we loved them

Until they had gone far away.


O, beautiful, beautiful school days-

O, could your sweet mem’ry remain,

Thro’ all of our pleaures and sorrows,

And bring back our school days again!
