          ANZACS BRAVE
They are waiting on the hillside,
Still and stained with battle foam,
For the dawn and the coming
Of the boats to take them home.

Ah! What few years lie behind them,
Yet their lives were full and true;
And the noble deeds that bind them
Bind our Homelands closer, too.

In the shadows, on the hillside,
By blue waters they would rest
After storm winds, peace and calmness,
Alter battle, sleep is best.
