The Teams

Rating: 5.0

A cloud of dust on the long white road,
And the teams go creeping on
Inch by inch with the weary load;
And by the power of the green-hide goad
The distant goal is won.

With eyes half-shut to the blinding dust,
And necks to the yokes bent low,
The beasts are pulling as bullocks must;
And the shining tires might almost rust

Tremendous poem! We learnt this as kids in school. It depicts so well the life, now long gone, of the teamster and his challenges in charge of up to 20 bullocks pulling side by side yoked together. With a huge whip made of greenside (unprocessed as in leather, cow-hide) often as long as 5 metres the teamster didn't have it easy. Henry depicted this so well - he knew a thing or two about the teamster's lot.
