Walter Murdoch (1874–1970).  The Oxford Book of Australasian Verse.  1918.
 
182. Progress
 
By Frank Wilmot
 
 
THEY’VE builded wooden timber tracks,
  And a trolly with screaming brakes
  Noses into the secret bush,
Into the birdless brooding bush,
  And the tall old gums it takes.        5
And down in the sunny valley,
  The snorting saw screams slow;
O bush that nursed my people,
O bush that cursed my people,
That flayed and made my people,        10
  I weep to watch you go.
