I’ve had this painting sitting half-done and backwards in a corner of my studio. A waterhole and the sinking sun across the plains blended in with one of my favourite poets work. Its funny, I’m so over hot and dry and rarely attempt an Australian scene. Usually go for something cooler.
So here is….
Sun Behind the Hill.
“When the sun’s behind the hill.
And we talk about the season,
And of how it’s turning out,
And we try to guess the reason
For the long-continued drought,
Oh! a farmer’s life ain’t roses and his work is never done:
And a job’s no sooner over than another is begun.
For he’s toiling late and early from the rising of the sun
Till it sinks behind the hill.
But it grows, that peaceful feeling
While I’m sitting smoking there,
And the kiddies all are kneeling
To repeat their ev’ning prayer;
For it seems, somehow, to lighten all the care that must be bore
When the things of life are worrying, and times are troubling sore;
And I pray that God will keep them when my own long-day is o’er,
…And the sun’s behind the hill.
C J Dennis (1876 – 1938)
