Time for a Poem – The Drovers

THE DROVERS by CJ Dennis

Out across the spinifex, out across the sand,
Out across the saltbush to Never Never land,
That’s the way the drovers go, jogging down the track,
That’s the way the drovers go, but how do they come back?
Back across the saltbush from Never Never land,
Back across the spinifex, back across the sand.
