Greetings from Boganvania

About this blog

Die Fernen sind im Herzen expresses a sentiment to which the Australian poet Mr Henry, straddling two centuries of lyrical tradition, wholeheartedly subscribes. Google translates this line as: The remote is in your heart, which, although Mr Henry frequently has to launch a hunt for the thing before he can watch the seven o'clock news, as a translation does perhaps not quite nail it. Mr Henry has suggested: Far away lands are within the heart, which may be a bit plodding as a translation, but gives readers, who - anyway - all have a reading knowledge of German, a better idea of where Mr Henry is coming from, as they say in Boganvania.

This blog consists of Mr Henry's poetry, a journey through Boganvania, an uncouth place with a good climate.
