THE GUM DIGGER

kiwissoar

been around for a while now
just watching over this town
since the old diggings closed

hard days back then
in the swamps
with my probe
and my shovel
but plenty of mates
and long yarns
as the billy boiled

and the good days
when the kauri gum was struck
bright amber and clear
from the old forests

a bit quiet nowadays
just remembering

the gum digger
