Break O’Day

Written Easter Sunday in Pyengana, Tasmania
Dedicated to the people of Break O’Day Parish, St Helens

Drink from the brook. The day sparkles the hills in their joy.
Look to the mountains: there comes your help.
Springing forth from caves with rolled-away stones
breaks the day, breaks the day.
Singing in haze, this resurrection joy
breaks away the old death;
drink the life.
