The greatest story ever told, as Banjo Paterson might have told it!
Hi Will, I was just reading your ‘Said Hanrahan’ poem, I think it’s my new favourite! God bless.
I’d love to subscribe to the website…. does this do it?
I was whilin’ (just a’whilin’) as I waited for a film
At Carlton Nova Cinema when I saw the name of Will
Mackerras – yes Mackerras! – now there is surely only one
such man as that in Melbourne town. (That’s unless he’s had a son?)
But paus’d I did a moment cos I really didn’t know it:
Perhaps the ‘first’ Mackerri had done gone become a poet!
I asked the man at Readings for a physical description.
He shrugged but passed a copy of the April talks edition.
Backpocket man. Once comedian. Affixer of the sheet.
Designer of saloons. One-thumb’ed touch-typist of the street.
Muller of migration law. Migrated himself to Wee Waa.
You crack me up, you and your clan, you crack me up, that’s for sure!
Thanks, that’s encouraging! Though I’m not sure you succeeded, as I haven’t received an email about it. I’m not sure where you do it. I might have a look around.
thanks for allowing me to preform your poems on the w/e.
I recited the first two and the last one in the banjo bible ‘series’.
They were extremely well received – they didn’t want me to stop!
also I took out shared first place in the concert! 🙂
One person said that they should be recorded as audio and made into braille books!
I said I would pass it on. (done) I also emailed her this website so maybe she can work it out with you. It would be a great thing for the blind! 9her name is Julie, btw)
just looove it. Thanks and praise be to God,
a northern rivers reader
Nick – love it!
