Subject: RE: Rise Up Mudcat Songbook - Australia
A thought has popped into my mind, as they do from time to time.
Henry Kendall's poem "Bell-birds" has been sung - I think by Kate Delaney? - to the tune of 'The spinning wheel' ("Mary, the moonlight to shine is beginning....." That would make a nice addition to the list.
Hands up if you remember having "Bell-birds" in your poetry list at school.
