Season’s Plying By

Season’s Plying By

There’s blokes been out there shearin’,
share croppin’ and the like
and they’ve worked their way up slowly
to a different way of life.

A way they dreamed n worked for
an acreage they’d own
along of course with bankers,
stock agents wheelin’ by.

There’s blokes been out there workin’
with wives n kids on side,
workin’ along steady
as seasons slowly ply.

Seasons cross the ages
as seasons ply their course,
hot n dry and flooded.
Parchment landscape marks the course.

There’s blokes been out there workin’,
hard at it on their block,
clearin’ land n seedin’.
Bit o shearin’, still of course.

There’s blokes still out there working
with wives n kids n crew,
other cultures mounting.

Banks changing out their course
as agents pay attention.
‘Gainst seasons plyin’ by.
Blokes’re out their shearin’.
Still out there for a try.

Spring Time in the Valley

Spring Time in the Valley

Well it’s spring time in the valley
And fresh buds start to bloom
Spring time in the valley
And we’re all voting soon

Fresh buds burst along the lines
of old entrenched swan valley lines

Spring time in the valley
Voting times real soon.

Where ‘ere you place your preferences
or which candidates preferred.

It’s Spring time in the valley
“Those on the Swan” prefer.

Summer’s Wild Fire

Summer’s Wild Fire

The seasons just breaking,
Out on The Swan.
Vines n grass paddocks
Quickly respond.

Greening up daily
As winter rolls on.
Next summer’s fuel load
Doubles in size.

Too late to burn off
As winter rolls by.
Too late to avoid,
Summers wild fires.
