Poet:  C.J. Dennis

Poet Biography: 
C J Dennis (1876- 1938), was a Poet & Journalist born in Auburn, South Australia. Christened Clarence Michael James, and afterwards given the confirmation name of Stanislaus. He preferred to be known as Den.

O, the trees grow straight and the trees grow tall, and the trees grow all around; and the long limbs sprout the trunks about, Where the Davlo owl is found. And the Davlo bird is most absurd in the early days of June; for he sings this song the whole day long, to a strange, fantastic tune. "O, ink, ink, ink! I sit and think; I brood on the Wildwood Tree; but, near or far, on Ingavar, No ink, no ink I see. And late or soon the swift cartoon must soar to the Utmost Star. O, ink, ink, ink! I swoon! I sink! O, inkless, Ingavar!" O, the trees grow long, and the trees grow strong, and the tress grow good and green, And the gloomy shades steal thro' the glades Where the Halgi Tit is seen. And the Halgi Tit he loves to sit on the frond of a swaying fern, and croon, and croon, to a low, loose tune this nervous, nude Nocturn. "Chow-white, chow-white! All night, all night, while the moon peeps thro' the leaves, and the sad wind soughs thro' inlaced boughs, where the shadows creep like thieves. I cry, and yearn for the Nude Nocturn! O, I seek her near and far! Chow-white, chow-white! I croon all night, Thro' the glades of Ingavar." O, the trees grow pale, and tall trees quail, and the sacred trees whisper soft. And the startled bush it murmurs "Hush!" When the Denawk swoops aloft. And, as he swoops, he shrieks and whoops in a ruthless, Rhythmic way; for twixt the trees and the sobbing breeze The Denawk seeks his prey. "Ho, rhyme, rhyme, rhyme! All fat and prime! I live by rhyme alone! In bush and town I hunt it down, and tear it flesh from bone. With a purpose grim for the synonym I forage near and far; and I rend my prey in a rhythmic way on the gums of Ingavar." O, yearning trees! O, burning trees O, trees that bend and sway! The good brown earth that gave you birth is very damp to-day. In mire and mud we slid we've slud; our boots are filled with slime Farewell ye gums till summer comes Farewell till Summertime. The Davlo hoots, the Halgi toots, The Denawk swoops no more Alone to yearn, the Nude Nocturn Adorns your leafy floor. But Trees, O, trees, what ecstacies Thrill thro' you, root and spar, When the Lord High Pot comes up to squat In the Glades of Ingavar, Afar, Green glades of Ingavar.
