Wattle Trees by Denis Kevans

Photo: © Paul Cosgrave Photography Canberra-born Denis Kevans (1939–2005) was a poet, songwriter and performer.

The wattle trees are brandishing their many shades of gold

The blizzards of the mountains crack the granite, with their cold,

They roar across the mountains, like a wave across the sea

And the yellow-foaming wattle keeps the love alight in me.
