Froth and Bubble

The aim of "Froth and Bubble" is to use the first lines of a verse from one of Adam Lindsay Gordon's famous poems to do two things.

  • To promote Adam Lindsay Gordon to his rightful place as Australia's first poet of note
  • Bring people together to celebrate literature.

"Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
KINDNESS in another's trouble,
COURAGE in your own."

Adam Lindsay Gordon had a great feeling for the sea and the sea-side is a great place to celebrate literature in Australia.

The Adam Lindsay Gordon Commemorative Committee Inc. seek the support of a national Froth and Bubble day held annually on the anniversary of Poet Gordon's death - 24 June.
