Poetry by Mark Richardson: “I Remember”

olive_branchI remember when I saw
what my fathers saw.

These unmade roads
paddocks eaten bare
the box trees rising, triumphantly,
from nowhere.

I remember when I breathed the air
of the land we held, air
sweet and heavy with the soil.
I breathed the freedom of a land
whose horizons were unseen
horizons so far away
we were lost within our own.

You are drawing away, you fathers,
and with you, what the land
held for us.
