Memoirs of Captain Henderson
Manly Daily January 1971
Capt Henderson quotes from the Evening News 16/6/1905


Twinkle and Bell

Twinkle, twinkle little bell
Welcome note our fears to quell
Sounding mid the fog so dense
Like an echo out of whence.

When the fog lies thick and low
Where the engines move dead slow
Boats start up like phantoms grim
And check collisions on the brim

Men in safety go afloat
Certain of your warning note
Trusting when the fog is thivck
To the arm that weilds the stick

Outcome of a system quaint
Well intentional tho so faint
Trusts and confidence impel
Twinkle, twinkle little bell.
