This poem was winner of the ABC National Radio 'Spirit of Matilda' Award held in conjunction with the 100 years celebrations of 'Waltzing Matilda' by Andrew Barton 'Banjo' Paterson. This prestigious award was presented to Marco by the late great Slim Dusty in Winton in 1995.
I remember seeing my Dad, an Italian migrant who worked too hard and died too young, in the back yard of our small town avenue house, one night, staring up at the stars and obviously contemplating life. There is no better place to do it than in Australia, nestled in the arms of Mother Nature and tucked under the blanket of the Southern Cross; what a wonderful place to dream. Help preserve it, and take the time to experience her spirit.
The greatest Army mankind has ever created is our legion of volunteers that appear in times of despair. This is Marco's ode to Volunteers.
