Ray Mow From The Yarra Ranges

Poem By Francis Duggan

If you would like some lessons at playing the didgeridoo
Ring Ray Mow from the Yarra Ranges he is one of the few
Who runs didgeridoo classes he is good at what he do
It is out of his successes that his reputation grew.

Ray Mow is an Australian though his father is a Pole
But the way he plays the didgeridoo he has a black man's soul
He know the Koori culture well the enlightened one Ray
And people come to learn from him from many miles away

As a promoter of entertainers he became a man of note
And he once promoted Eric Bogle the famed song writer poet
And far beyond the Yarra Ranges Ray Mow is quite well known
And through his many contacts his band of friends has grown.

A character in his own right and quite a witty bloke
And he has people laughing when he cracks a funny joke
There is much to like about him he makes friends easily
And of any inhibitions he seems totally free.

A stockily built fellow in his forties full of the joys of life
He is often seen at functions with Leah his lovely wife
Ray Mow from the Yarra Ranges his type are only few
And I don't know of any better at playing the didgeridoo

A Ballad Of Wasted Years

I have walked through tougher Harlem where few strangers dare to go
And I've been in London City in the rain and in the snow
And I've worked in inner Melbourne in the searing summer heat
And believe me if I tell you I have earned the bread I eat.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me
What to her is a flower to me is a weed

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,
