Last night, my Sister passed away.
SUSAN ( SANDERS) POMROY. 26 May 1952 – 17 February 2911.
"Those were summers when the heart quivered up from the hot yellow gravel and pierced the plaited rushes
of my wide-brimmed hats, summers almost without nights. For even then I so loved the dawn that my mother
granted it to me as a reward. She used to agree to wake me at half past three and off I would go, an empty
basket on each arm, towards the kitchen gardens that sheltered in the narrow bend of the river, in search of
strawberries, black currants, and hairy gooseberries."

WE ARE GOING.
They came in to the little town
A semi-naked band subdued and silent
All that remained of their tribe.
They came here to the place of their old bora ground
Where now the many white men hurry about like ants.
Kath Walker aka Oodgerdoo Noonuccal (1920-1993)

“Like the trees, we are visitors, guests of earth. The light shines down, and a bud breaks, branches give way before us, a book’s leaves open, and our eyes look, look again. We are a grove, companions spared to be on earth at the same time. The trees – though not our kind – are kin, elder relatives standing to greet us.”
Kim Stafford, from “Tree of All Trees” in Entering the Grove.
