Prospects for the Future
24, Paternoster Row;
Henry Ireson Jones, Wanganui, New Zealand.
1868.page iv Queen of the South! which the mighty Pacific
Claims for its Britain in ages to be,
Bright with fair visions and hopes beatific,
Glorious and happy thy future I see.
Fifty years hence—look forward and see it,
Realm of New Zealand, what then shalt thou be!
Even should Britain’s decay be down written,
All shall be greatness and glory with thee.
