Thanks for putting up the lyrics. This is a folksong of course, so it exists in different versions. I've heard "beat by the old swagger (i.e., 'swagman" which seems to make sense in the song. Is there a meaning to "snagger"? (Don't put e-mail address in guestbook)

Webmaster comments   Hi Ranald,

If you read the comments below the lyrics it explains meanings of some of the words. The "Snagger" means the lucky person who "snags" (or purely by chance gets) the sheep with little belly wool which means it will be a lot less wool to shear. As shearers were paid at a set rate for each sheep shorn, getting sheep with little belly wool was a bonus as it allowed them to shear the sheep quicker. Although there are differing versions, I do not think "the swagger" would be correct as a swagman would rarely be found in a shearing shed. Swagmen walked from place to place doing odd jobs and would rarely if ever be seen in any shearing shed.

Hi. Thanks for sharing this poem. I am so sorry you had to endure such pain, but I can see also that in sharing your pain, that someone else will be saved from such horrors of child abuse.

Webmaster comments   Thanks Ali, if it brings one case to light and stops one more child from suffering it is worth it.

I stumbled in here in a round about manner, starting with Facebook where I read the poem Living and Dying by Joseph Bates, including your eloquent comments. I am a Vietnam Veteran, having served one full tour in '67-'68 and a partial tour in '72. I was never in the field with the grunts, I was at DaNang repairing airplanes and loading them with ordnance to support the grunts. I read your 100 things about you and marveled that although we live almost 10,000 miles apart, we share many of the same likes and dislikes. Keep up the good work. Your site is both refreshing and uplifting.

I enjoyed your poem, "The Night" so much this morning. I saw just such a night last evening. The stars were so bright and the moon high in the clear sky. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent.

Gayle hasn't sent out a newsletter for where my poems are published in a while. She has had a very difficult time and I understand completely her need to step aside for a while. I lift her up in prayer constantly in hopes she will soon be sharing again.

I haven't visited your site in some time and was happy to find this wonderful poem and put in my favorites so I could read it again and again. God bless you. Your friend, Jane

Webmaster comments   Thank you Jane, very happy to see you enjoyed your visit.

Unfortunately I haven't done a great deal to this site for a while, so it is always nice to know people still enjoy their visits.

God bless

Well done, my friend. We had Ceduna-West Tours in 1974, and took 6 passengers Adelaide to Eucla, taking five days to get from Ceduna to Eucla, then swapping passengers with a Beechcraft for the return journey. If we'd had the money and business sense, we might still be doing it, but today (9 Feb 2012) we are just free-ranging, on our way to Adelaide from Perth in our fifth wheeler.

Webmaster comments   Thanks for the comment in my Guest Book. If my memory serves me correctly in 1974 it would have been the "old Eyre Highway" you travelled on, and would still have been unsealed from at least Penong to the border (Eucla). That was both a trip and an adventure in those days.

Hi Eddie,
I think many of us are struggling to get our sites back going like they use to be. I know I want too, but have had a down time sitting here so much.
I just read your poem again from Melva's newsletter, "And The Heavens Opened". I sure was touched by your words. You write the best poems still that I have read. You can always tell they are from your heart.
I hope your doing better now with your back, etc. And that you and Sharon and your family are all fine.
I pray you will have a good year for 2012.
Please know that your in my prayers each day. I have a list on my desktop. I know you will pray for me as I can use them. Thank You.
God Bless You my friend.
