Barangaroo by Robyn Edwards

1.

The first woman Barangaroo

Proud Eora warrior

Fishing Gadigal coves and inlets

In a bark nowie1

With paddle and line

Small firelight crackles inside the canoe

Kindles an orange spark,

Barangaroo’s song flames the water,

Stirs the land.

1 nowie – a small canoe
