Works in the Herald 1929
1. COLLINS STREET
As I passed over Collins street
Where shadows fret the tree-lined way,
A dapper man I chanced to meet
Whose manner was not grave nor gay.
His nice demeanour would denote
A sad importance touched by hope:
And from the pocket of his coat
Peeping I saw a stethescope.
I marked his calculating eye
Roam o'er my figure, up and down,
While just the whisper of a sigh
Went with the shadow of a frown.
And whether 'twas he spoke in guile
Or very truth I cannot tell,
As he said to me with a smile,
"I hope you're well."
