The Poems Of Banjo Paterson


The poems of Banjo Paterson will live forever more
They have become quite famous beyond Australia's shore
The author of The Man from Snowy River and Clancy of the Overflow
He passed on in his seventies more than sixty ago.

The stories and poems of Banjo are part of Aussie folklore
Of Australia's best known writers one of the top three or four
His song Waltzing Matilda should be Australia's National Anthem many say
The poet is gone forever but his words live on today.

The poems of Banjo Paterson of legendary stuff are made
He was a natural wordsmith a master of his trade
He knew about the hard life in the days of the pioneer
And his poems on bush people to real life seems so near.

In the annals of Australian literature a leading man of rhyme
Along with Henry Lawson a legend of his time
Saltbush Bill and A Bush Christening, Mulga Bill's Bicycle and many more
The poems and songs of Banjo Paterson will live forever more.
