PALMER RIVER Palmer River

Gold upon the mountain side,
Gold in rock and river,
Gold in men whose spirits ride
From the vast Forever
To seek again the better time,
Their loves, and lusts, the flowered rhyme,
The warm red days that softened crime
Back of Never-Never.

                        Victor Kennedy (1928)
