TROPIC DAYS (1918)

By E. J. Banfield

Author Of "The Confessions Of A Beachcomber" And "My Tropic Isle"

"Peace and silence. . . combined with the large liberties of nature."

De Quincey

TO

MY BROTHER BEACHCOMBERS; Professing, Practising

AUTHOR'S NOTE

In my previous books the endeavour was to give exact if prosaic details

of life on an island off the coast of North Queensland on which a few

of the original inhabitants preserved their uncontaminated ways. Here

is presented another instalment of sketches of a quiet scene. Again an

attempt is made to describe--not as ethnological specimens, but as men

and women--types of a crude race in ordinary habit as they live, though

not without a tint of imagination to embolden the better truths.

I thankfully acknowledge indebtedness to my friends Mr. Charles Hedley,

of the Australian Museum (Sydney); Dr. R. Hamlyn-Harris, Director of

the Queensland Museum; and Mr. Dodd S. Clarke, of Townsville, N.Q., for

valuable aid in the preparation of my notes for publication.

PART I--SUN DAYS

IN IDLE MOMENT

"'Are you not frequently idle?' 'Never, brother. When we are not engaged

in our traffic we are engaged in our relaxations.'"--BORROW.

On the smooth beaches and in the silent bush, where time is not

regulated by formalities or shackled by conventions, there delicious

lapses--fag-ends of the day to be utilised in a dreamy mood which

observes and accepts the happenings of Nature without disturbing the

shyest of her manifestations or permitting 'the-mind to dwell on any but

the vaguest speculations.

Such idle moments are mine. Let these pages tell of their occupation.

As the years pass it is proved that the administration of the affairs of

an island, the settled population of which is limited to three, involves

pleasant though exacting duties. It is a gainful government--not

gainful in the accepted sense, but in all that vitally matters--personal

freedom, absence of irksome regulations remindful of the street, liberty

to enjoy the mood of the moment and to commune with Nature in her most

fascinating aspects. Those who are out of touch with great and dusty

events may, by way of compensation, be the more sensitive to the

processes of the universe, which, though incessantly repeated, are

blessed with recurrent freshness.

The sun rises, travels across a cloudless sky, gleams on a sailless sea,

disappears behind purple mountains gilding their outline, and the day is

done. Not a single dust-speck has soiled sky or earth; not the faintest

echo of noisy labours disturbed the silences; not an alien sight has

intruded. What can there be in such a scene to exhilarate? Must not

the inhabitants vegetate dully after the style of their own bananas?

Actually the day has been all too brief for the accomplishment of

inevitable duties and to the complete enjoyment of all too alluring

relaxations.

Here is opportunity to patronise the sun, to revel in the companionship

of the sea, to confirm the usage of beaches, to admonish winds to

seemliness and secrecy, to approve good-tempered trees, to exchange

confidences with flowering plants, to claim the perfumed air, to rejoice

in the silence--

"Not learning more than the fond eye doth teach,

Which pries not to th' interior."

How oft is the confession that the fullest moments of life are achieved

when I roam the beaches with little more in the way of raiment than

sunburn and naught in hand save the leaves of some strange, sand-loving

plant? Then is it that the individual is magnified. The sun salutes. The

wind fans. The sea sighs a love melody. The caressing sand takes print

of my foot alone. All the world might be mine, for none is present to

dispute possession. The sailless sea smiles in ripples, and strews its

verge with treasures for my acceptance. The sky's purity enriches my

soul. Shall I not joy therein?

Though he may be unable to attain those moments of irresistible

intuition which came to Amiel, when a man feels himself great like the

universe and calm like a god, one may thrill with love and admiration

for Nature without resigning sense of superiority over all other of her

works or abating one jot of justifiable pride.

Even in tropical Queensland there is a sense of revivification during

the last half of August and first of September, and the soul of man

responds thereto, as do plants and birds, in lawful manner. Perhaps it

is that the alien dweller in lands of the sun, when he frisks mentally

and physically at this sprightly season, is merely obeying an imperative

characteristic bred into him during untold generations when the winter

was cruelly real and spring a joyfulrelease from cold and distress. The

cause may be slight, but there is none to doubt the actual awakening,

for it is persuasive and irresistible.

The lemon-trees are discarding the burden of superfluous fruit with

almost immoderate haste, for the gentle flowers must have their day.

Pomeloes have put forth new growth a yard long in less than a fortnight,

and are preparing a bridal array of blooms such as will make birds

and butterflies frantic with admiration and perfume the scene for the

compass of a mile. The buff-and-yellow sprays of the mango attract

millions of humming insects, great and small. Most of the orchids are

in full flower, the coral-trees glow, the castanospermum is full of

bud, loose bunches of white fruit decorate the creeping palms, and

the sunflower-tree is blotched with gold in masses. The birds make

declaration of attachment for the season.

Great trees, amorous birds, frail insects, perceive the subtle influence

of the season, and shall not coarse-fibred man rejoice, though there

be little or nothing to which he may point as special evidence of

inspiration? He may feel the indefinable without comprehending any

material reason why. He may confess, although there is but a trifle more

sunshine than a month ago--and what influence a trifle where there is

so much--and scarcely any difference of temperature, that Nature is

insisting on obedience to one of her mighty laws--the law of heredity.

Why, therefore, refrain from justifying the allusion? Why persist in

declining the invitations of the hour? Far be it from me to do so. Is

sufferance the cognizance of this Free Isle?

All my days are Days of the Sun. All my days are holy. Duty may suggest

the propriety of contentment within four walls. Inclination and the

thrill of the season lure me to gloat over the more manifest of its

magic. Be sure that, unabashed and impenitent, shall I riot over

sordid industry during the most gracious time of year to hearken to the

eloquence and accept the teachings of unpeopled spaces.

Such is the silence of the bush that the silkenrustle of the

butterflies becomes audible and the distinctiveflight of birds is

recognised--not alone such exaggerated differences as the whirr of

quail, the bustle of scrub fowl, and the whistle and clacking of nutmeg

pigeons, but the delicate and tender characteristics of the wing

notes of the meeker kinds of doves and the honey-eaters, and also the

calculated flutterings of the fly-catchers. In the whistling swoop of

the grey goshawk there is a note of ominous blood-thirstiness, silent

though the destroyer has sat awaiting the moment for swift and decisive

action.

Seldom, even on the stillest evening, may the presence of the night-jar

be detected, except by its coarse call, while the sprightly little

sun-bird flits hither and thither, prodigal of its vivid colours

and joying with machine-like whirring. The sun-bird exemplifies the

brightness of the day. All its activities are bold and conspicuous.

Aptly named, it has nothing to hide, no deeds which will not withstand

the scrutiny of the vividest rays.

To work out its destiny the night-jar depends on secret doings and on

flight soft as a falling leaf. It is a bird of the twilight and night.

Startled from brooding over its eggs or yet dependent chicks, it is

ghost-like in its flittings and disappearances. In broad daylight it

moves from its resting-place as a leaf blown by an erratic and sudden

puff, and vanishes as it touches the sheltering bosom of Mother Earth.

Mark the spot of its vanishment and approach never so cautiously, and

you see naught. Peer about and from your very feet that which had been

deemed to be a shred of bark rises and is wafted away again by a phantom

zephyr.

The chick which the parent bird has hidden remains a puzzle. It moves

not, it may not blink. Its crafty parent has so nibbled and frayed the

edges of the decaying brown leaves among which it nestles that it has

become absorbed in the scene. There is nothing to distinguish between

the leaf-like feathers and the feather-like leaves. The instinct of

the bird has blotted itself out. It is there, but invisible, and to

be discovered only by the criticalinspection of every inch of its

environment. You have found it; but not for minutes after its instinct

has warned it to possess its soul calmly and not to be afraid. So firm

is its purpose that if inadvertently you put your foot on its tender

body it would not move or utter cry. All its faculties are concentrated

on impassiveness, and thus does Nature guard its weakest and most

helpless offspring.

While you ponder on the wonderful faith of the tiny creature which

suffers handling without resistance, the shred of bark, driven by the

imperceptible zephyr, falls a few yards away, and in an agony of anxiety

utters an imploring purr, or was it an imprecation? That half purr, half

hiss has been the only sound of the episode. It is a warning to be gone

and leave Nature to her secrets and silences.

A month's abstinence may not be a very severepenance for an island on

which the rainfall averages 124 inches per year; but when vegetation

suffers from the cruelty of four almost rainless months, promises and

slights amount to something more than mere discourtesy. How genuine

the thanksgiving to the soft skies after an incense-stimulating shower.

Insects whirl in the sunshine. Among the pomelo-trees is a cyclone of

scarcely visible things. Motes and specks of light dance in disorderly

figures, to be detected as animated objects only by gauzy wings catching

the light and reflecting it. Each insect, wakened but an hour ago by

the warmth of the moist soil, in an abandonment of the moment, is a

helioscope transmitting signals of pure pleasure. Drops still linger

on myriads of leaves, and glitter on the glorious gold of the Chinese

laburnum; the air is saturated with rich scents, and the frolicking

crowd, invisible but for the oblique light, does not dream of disaster.

Their crowded hour has attracted other eyes, appreciative in another

sense. Masked wood-swallows, swiftlets, spangled drongos, leaden
