Oodgeroo Noonuccal 1920–93
Australian poet 

  1. But I'll tell instead of brave and fine
    When lives of black and white entwine.
    And men in brotherhood combine,
    This would I tell you, son of mine.
    ‘Son of Mine (To Denis)’ (1964)
  2. The scrubs are gone, the hunting and the laughter.
    The eagle is gone, the emu and the kangaroo are gone from this place.
    The bora ring is gone.
    The corroboree is gone.
    And we are going.
    ‘We are Going’ (1964)
