โ€œOld Grannyโ€, so they call the ancient soul โ€”
That little woman sitting by the door.
Sheโ€™s worn โ€” for her long life sheโ€™s paid a toll.
Apparently her family was poor.
She had a dozen kids or maybe more โ€”
At least six daughters and six strapping sons.
Two of her boys she lost in the Great War.
They all were good with horses and with guns;
Were raised on western stations โ€” massive runs.
Her husband was a hard man โ€” so itโ€™s said.
Was typical of those Australians
Who were around back then โ€” now most are dead.
And Granny will soon join them I would say โ€”
Sheโ€™s just a relic of another day.
