Hyde Park by Night by Dorothea Dowling

| No TrackBacks
'Tis surely here that Freedom comes to dream!
   The spacious grandeur of its lawns wide flung,
The slumb'rous beauty of its lights that gleam
(Like scattered mist-encircled moons they seem),
   And hallow'd shrine where Freedom's songs are sung.

First published in The Sydney Morning Herald, 28 September 1935;
and later in
When I Am Free by Dorothea Dowling, 1940.

Author: Dorothea Helena Dowling was born in Sydney some time in the decade of the 1910s. She was a classic ballerina as well as a poet.
