Bush Ballads & Galloping Rhymes. to the Author of Holmby House. They are rhymes rudely strung with intent less. Of sound than of words, In lands where bright blossoms are scentless

Bush Ballads & Galloping Rhymes. From broken up fountain heads, dash on. Dry deserts with long pent up passion -. Here rhyme was first framed without fashion, Song shaped without form.

Bush Ballads and Galloping Rhymes (1870) is the second poetry collection by Australian poet Adam Lindsay Gordon. It was also the last collection to be published during the poet's lifetime appearing only the day before the author's suicide. Most of the poems were published in the Australian newspapers Colonial Monthly and The Australasian.

Adam Lindsay Gordon (19 October 1833 – 24 June 1870) was an Australian poet, jockey, police officer, and politician.

Adam Lindsay Gordon was an Australian poet, jockey and politician, born in the Azores. On the 23rd of that month, he published his final volume, "Bush Ballads and Galloping Rhymes". The son of an English army captain, Gordon went to school in Cheltenham, before leaving for Australia shortly before his 20th birthday. A dreamy athlete, Gordon preferred horse riding and quoting lengthy reams of Greek and Latin poetry to any kind of hard work. In mounting debt and suffering depression, Gordon walked home that night aware that this volume would probably also not sell very well, and it certainly wouldn't make him famous, or solve his money troubles.

But Gordon had just asked his publishers what he owed them for printing the book, and realized that he had no money to pay them and no prospects.
