By A Fire of Gidgee Coals- Explored
By a warm electric heater
In a softly padded chair
In a lounge room brightly lighted
By a glowing chandelier
Since my early days of drovin'
The years have taken toll
But I somehow miss my swag wrap
By a fire of Gidgee coal
In far Western Queensland's channel country under a roof of stars with the milky way in all its splendour.
Can remember my early years droving with Dad, no gidgee coals though in Far North Queensland and no Nissan just the clink of the horses hobble chains throughout the night...:))
The temperature was around the zero degrees but is remarkable with the coals from the fire and the cosy swags how comfortable we were.
