Children’s far shouts on Sunday afternoons,
And distant dogs barking beneath the moon’s
Cold-misted light; the faint, far pant
Of mountain engines climbing through the hills,
And traffic-roar on foggy morning; these enchant
The ear with memories of other days

Nancy Cato (1917 – 2000), Australian poet
