Walter Murdoch (1874–1970).  The Oxford Book of Australasian Verse.  1918.
 
184. The Last Port
 
By Frank Wilmot
 
 
I WROUGHT and battled and wept, near and afar
  I scanned the secret of the bud and star.
 
Hill-road and desert, and the hurrying street
Know well the impress of my restless feet!
 
Then some one came with soft, caressing glance,        5
Slow, like a woman out of all romance.
 
Love closed around me these warm, folded wings—
That was the end of all my wanderings.
