Great Australian Authors #6 - Victor Daley


Victor Daley (1858 - 1905)

Stand up, my young Australian,
In the brave light of the sun,
And hear how Freedom's battle
Was in the old days lost - and won.
The blood burns in my veins, boy,
As it did in years of yore,
Remembering Eureka,
And the men of 'Fifty-four..

From "Eureka" by Victor Daley
