The World Around US
swags, earth, environment, war,

with eyes upon the World,

with ebon flags unfurled –
or are they but a warning,
some draped like snakes and...
Our mate Charlie the drover
swags, adventureold, home, day, home, old,
Our Mate Charlie Brummell
Yes mate we went a droving back in nineteen fifty eight,
The drovers cook was pretty rough, he couldn`t wash a plate....
There he walked an unknown Bagman,
who camped upon the track.
So sad he seemed this Swagman,
his jingling billy burnt and black.
I’ve sorted spuds at Cora Lynn, picked asparagus at Vervale,
Cherries in the Dandenong’s, beans on the Thompson close to Sale,
I’ve picked apples out at...

A Spoonful of Snow
swags, childhood, christmas, snow,
We scratched and scrapped and piled it together,
thin as cobwebs, like molted bird feathers,
spread out on the frozen lawn,
a gossamer frosting in early dawn,
I never met a better fella
until I met Ella
Ella was finer than Esther
but stronger than Joshua.
She's gat crude swags

A DAY IN BLACK
Sky moves from secret to secret
Glow of star-studded jacket
Fades to black cloak, veil and all
cursing fresh gale of inveterate laughter.
On earth strange smelling vapors
From my Hammock

I turn off the spicket of daily business
From inside the cocoon
Of my hammock
My world seems different
As I gently sway, caressed in suspension
No effort needed
