Artist's Description

Beside the flowless river’s side
Idle, still and quiet
The Oscar sits
In glowing light
And bumps
The jetty’s wood

Empty seats
Joined
Back to back
Unoccupied

The rail shed now
No bustling noise
Of working men
And steams loud sound
But silent night
And lapping waves
Greet the muddy shores

Written for this image of empty seats on the wharf at Goolwa late at night as the Oscar W steamboat lies at her berth on the waterless Murray River.
