Living Rivers Poem

Living Rivers was written by renowned Australian poet, Bruce Dawe, to commemorate the significance and opening of the LibraryMuseum

On the side of the LibraryMuseum building near the entrance this fantastic poem reflects place and purpose.

Here in this place both past and future meet
And in the living present join their power,
And, as in every union that's replete,
There is a richness which transcends the hour,
And makes it memorable for years to come
– So time will add its own encomium...
Since each of us, they say, is a living river
This tribute to our lives and to our land
Will serve to unite the gifted and the giver
And reinforce what we all understand:
That arts and learning merit our devotion
Just as our rivers feed both land and ocean.
