This is a graphite drawing done by me a year or more ago, of David Gulpilil, Australian Aboriginal actor, starred in such movies as 'Crocodile Dundee', 'The Tracker', 'Rabbit-Proof Fence', 'Storm Boy', 'Mad Dog Morgan' (with Dennis Hopper), 'Walkabout', plus many other movies and television movies/series.
The poem I just wrote now to go with my drawing.
The stockman's face glistens under the torrid outback sun
Weather-beaten wiry and worn his teeth tobacco-stained
Alone he rode o'er the dusty dry land his day never done
His love of the vast brown land remains forever ingrained
Parched by day the unforgiving copper luminary beyond
Unrelenting in its punishment upon all that wander below
As if obeying the devil's command it does eagerly respond
Silence is broken by bellowing cattle and the call of a crow
