Artist's Description

CLICK GO THE SHEARS – Composer unknown

Click go the shears boys, click click click! Wide is his blow and his hands move quick.
The Ringer looks around and is beaten by a blow, and curses the old snagger with a bare-bellied yeo.
Out on the board the old shearer stands, grasping his shears in his long, bony hands.
Fixed is his gaze on a bare-bellied yeo.
Glory, if he gets her, wont he make the Ringer go!

This series, taken today on my farm (16/12/08) is in honour of my Dad – a wool industry man his entire life. I grew up listening to his stories of the wool sheds, complete with tales of drunkard shearer’s cooks!
