ANDERSON (ROSS JAMES)
Rest in Peace
Remembered with the deepest love from Keith, Karen and all the family.
In memory of Ross James Anderson.
THE GLASS on the BAR Three Bushmen one morning rode up to an inn
And one of them called for the drinks with a grin,
They'd only returned from a trip to the north
And eager to greet them, the landlord came forth.
He absently poured out a glass of Three Star,
And set down that drink with the rest on the bar.
There, that is for Ross, he said, and it's queer,
Tis the very same glass that he drank from last year,
His name's on the glass, you can read it like print,
He scratched it himself with an old piece of flint,
I remember his drink - it was always Three Star -
And the landlord looked out through the door of the bar.
He looked at the horses and counted but three,
You were always together - where's Ross? cried he.
Oh sadly they looked at the glass as they said
You may put it away, for our old mate is dead,
But one, gazing out over the ridges afar
Said, we owe him a shout - leave the glass on the bar.
They thought of the far-away grave on the plain
They thought of their cobber who came not again,
They lifted their glasses and sadly they said
We drink to the name of our mate who is dead.
And sunlight streamed in, and a light like a star
Seemed to glow in the depth of the glass on the bar.
(Poem by Henry Lawson)
