Henry Lawson

Here you will find the Poem All Ashore! of poet Henry Lawson

All Ashore!

The rattling `donkey? ceases,
The bell says we must part,
You long slab of good-nature,
And poetry and art!

We?ll miss your smile in Sydney,
We?ll miss your care-free air;
Where care-free airs are needed
And grins are growing rare,

Good Health! Good pay! Good liquor,
And good pals, night and day,
Good morning and good evening ?
God bless you, Hugh McCrae!
