Translator's note: There is a god of Poesy, Wallatu, who composes music, and who, without temple, shrine, or statue, is as universally acknowledged as if his oracles were breathed by Belus or Osiris: he comes in dreams, and transports the individual to some sunny hill, where he is inspired with the supernatural gift. Mulla Villa, September 25
'... three short songs ...composed by a renowned poet named Wullati, who lived on the [New South Wales] coast close to Moon Island ... The language of the songs appears to be Awabakal ...' John O'Leary, 'Giving the Indigenous a Voice - Further Thoughts on the Poetry of Eliza Hamilton Dunlop', Journal of Australian Studies 82 (2004): 85-93, notes 187-189.
