A SONG OF CAPE LEEUWIN


(Cape Leeuwin is a promontory on the Southernmost coast of Western Australia)


By ERNEST FAVENC

Beaten by tempest and stormed by drift,
Steady I keep my post,
And laugh at the southern rollers long,
For I'm guard of the Southern Coast.

I watched the Dutchmen on their way,
In the days of long ago,
But they set no foot on my rocky shore,
Where the billows break in snow.

They gave me my name and sailed away,
And then the English came,
With their straining sails on their plunging ships,
And their flag flew out like flame.
