Michael, James Lionel, was one of the earliest of Australian poets. He was a solicitor at Grafton, in New South Wales, and published in Sydney in 1854 a volume entitled "Songs without Music," a collection of tuneful lyrics, and in 1857 "John Cumberland," a long narrative poem, containing passages of distinct ability. He was found drowned in the Clarence river in 1868.
