Mendi-Mendi Woke-Woke

Away back in the forties,
By grasses growing rank,
Flow the ever-running waters,
Where anton ‘s cattle drank.
Just away down yonder,
Where lands to seaward slope.

Young Henry, the stockman,
became’ familiar with the wild bush, the solitude, the scents and sounds of the sea.

He was an ardent lover of the windswept spaces and magical influences of nature’s teachings whilst his beloved Manton’s Creek flowed by.
