Walter Murdoch (1874–1970).  The Oxford Book of Australasian Verse.  1918.
 
128. On the Just and the Unjust
 
By Blanche Edith Baughan
 
 
OUTCAST, a horror to his kind,
  At night he to the forest fled.
There, the birch-bark made fire for him,
  The brown fern made a bed.
 
The river murmured lullaby,        5
The moisty mosses breathed of balm,
The clean stars carried light to him,
  Unterrified and calm.
 
Aye, as they would have served a saint
Freely all served the guilty guest.        10
They only saw their Father’s son,
  And brought their brother rest.
