The Bonny Port of Sydney - Henry Lawson 1905

Henry Lawson imageWay back in 1905, Sydney Harbour caught the heart and the eye of Henry Lawson, one of Australia's more famous poet and writer and was once featured on the $10 paper note in Australia.

In 1903 he resided in North Sydney where his closeness to the 'world's most beautiful harbour' allowed him write The Bonny Port of Sydney Harbour.

The Bonny Port of Sydney

The lovely Port of Sydney
Lies laughing to the sky,
The bonny Port of Sydney,
Where the ships of nations lie.
You shall never see such beauty,
Though you sail the wide world o'er,
As the sunny Port of Sydney,
As we see it from the Shore.

The shades of night are falling
On many ports of call,
But the harbour lights of Sydney
& Are the grandest of them all;
Such a city set in jewels
Has ne'er been seen before
As the harbour lights of Sydney
As we see them from the Shore.

I must sail for gloomy London,
Where there are no harbour lights,
Where no sun is seen in winter,
And there are no starry nights;
And the bonny port of Sydney —
I may never see it more,
But I'll always dream about it
As we view it from North Shore.

Henry Lawson, 1905
