Poem of the Day


The Darling of the Darling Downs

by Allan Cropper

Lady Flo, the wife of Joh

The darling of the Darling Downs

Her recipe for pumpkin scones

Was shared across Australian towns

The farmers in the pumpkin patch

And those who baked and kneaded dough

Were all prepared to cook a batch

And give the pumpkin scones a go

Australia loved the pumpkin scone

and Flo became a household name.

It wasn’t due to husband Joh,

That Lady Flo had found her fame.

In meeting halls and country fairs

The pumpkin scones still do the rounds

So take a bow, dear Lady Flo

The darling of the Darling Downs.
