Corroboree


 


The clap, clap, clap of the clapsticks beat
By the old, red rocks with their scars
To the stamp, stamp, stamp of the old men's feet
And the wink, wink, wink of the stars.
With the drone, drone, drone of the didgeridoo
And the sound of its ancient tune
In the dance of the snake and the kangaroo
By the light of the walkabout moon.
The chants will rise and drift and fall
While the night with a magic fills
Where the old men dance to the Dreamtime's call
In the heart of the secret hills.

                                       Max Fatchen





Corroboree is the festival dance performed by the aborigines of Australia. Music is provided on the didgeridoo - a wind instrument.
