Sullivan, A. (n.d.). The Bush Fire. Retrieved from

Night fell; there was no sign of rain: Day broke; the sweltering day again: Then, with the light, a scorching wind And a grey wall driving close behind, A thick grey wall that, mounting, spread Like a vast blanket overhead. It blotted out the breathless sky, Feifing the woods; where, deep and dry, Dead brush, dead leaves, dead branches lay Like tinder strewn. From far away Ibrough the invisible chaos came, A crackling monotone of flame. Fanned by the top-rid blast it swept Redfooted; onward, upward leapt, Cleaving with quick and licking tongue The cloud that o'er its furnace hung. Then plaintive cries and whimperings Of dumb and terror stricken things, A stumbling, maimed and blistered tide, Hunter and hunted side by side And, winnowing the acrid air, Lost birds were calling everywhere.
