Kenneth Ivo Brownley Langwell Mackenzie was born in Perth in 1915 and grew up in Pinjarra, Western Australia. He was awarded many literary grants and awards during his short life – he died in 1955 in an accidental drowning – and left a number of works that were edited and published posthumously. During his time in Sydney he was influenced by Norman Lindsay and Hugh McCrae. Our Earth is a blank verse poem.
