Artwork Description

‘Shanty’ by Meg Lewer

Love Lawson’s Australian Poetry and can see the tiny flicker of candlelight beckoning the weary drivers in the window of my “Shanty”

When the caravans of wool-teams climbed the ranges from the West,
On a spur among the mountains stood ‘The Bullock-drivers’ Rest’; It was built of bark and saplings, and was rather rough inside,
But ’twas good enough for bushmen in the careless days that died —
Just a quiet little shanty kept by ‘Something-in-Disguise’, As the bushmen called the landlord of the Shanty on the Rise. ‘Twas the bullock-driver’s haven when his team was on the road,
And the waggon-wheels were groaning as they ploughed beneath the load;
And I mind how weary teamsters struggled on while it was light,
Just to camp within a cooey of the Shanty for the night;
And I think the very bullocks raised their heads and fixed their eyes
On the candle in the window of the “Shanty on the Rise
Henry Lawson 1891
