A poem in The New Leader Book (1926), accompanied by a woodcut by Claire Leighton.

In 1935, Bates would write a glowing review of Leighton's gardening book Four Hedges.

The second verse is known to have been reprinted with the title 'Reckoning Day' in the Daily Standard (Brisbane, April 23, 1927, p. 4).

A different version of the poem was printed in Bates's Christmas 1930 card. Both versions are also printed in Give Them Their Life (1990).
