This attractive Art Deco seat (made from Bondi sandstone) was built in 1939 for the Australian poet Henry Kendall. It is in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia which I had a stroll through on the weekend. I had not heard of this poet, so I looked him up and here I present a the second stanza from his poem "Bellbirds":
The silver-voiced bell-birds, the darlings of day-time,
They sing in September their songs of the May-time.
When shadows wax strong and the thunder-bolts hurtle,
They hide with their fear in the leaves of the myrtle;
When rain and the sunbeams shine mingled together
They start up like fairies that follow fair weather,
And straightway the hues of their feathers unfolden
Are the green and the purple, the blue and the golden.
