Banjo Paterson

(1864-1941)

To George Lambert


An essay on Australia Art and Literature. In recognition of Lambert's really excellent portrait of Mrs Paterson.

Come all ye men of paint and pen,
Who toil with hand and brain.
Forsake the town and take the brown
And dusty roads again.
The tracks that we old-timers know,
Who showed you all the way to go
With clancy of the Overflow
Across the Black Soil Plain.

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
