Transcript of Banjo Paterson

Banjo Paterson's dad was
named Andrew Bogle Paterson,
he was born on the 1st of January
1833 and was a grazier along
illalong station until 1889 when he
died. Banjo Paterson Banjo Paterson was influenced
by the shearers strike in 1894 to
write a well know song called
Waltzing Matilda What influenced Banjo Paterson There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the colt from old Regret had got away,
And had joined the wild bush horses -- he was worth a thousand pound,
So all the cracks had gathered to the fray.
All the tried and noted riders from the stations near and far
Had mustered at the homestead overnight,
For the bushmen love hard riding where the wild bush horses are,
And the stock-horse snuffs the battle with delight. THE MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER Banjo Paterson was born on the
17th of February 1864 and died
on the5th of February 1941 due
to a heart attack . Birth and Death of Banjo Paterson Banjo Paterson's poetry is appealing to
me because alot of his poems are based on
country and mountains and there is also a
place called snow river and that is how it relates
to me and and why his poetry is appealing Banjo Paterson family Banjo Paterson's mothers was
named Rose Isabella Barton she
was born on the 30th of December
1844 and died on the 24th of February
1893. What makes their poetry appealing Banjo Paterson also had 6
siblings 5 girls named Rose,
Emily, Mary, Grace, and Gwendolen. Waltzing Matilda has become
one of the worlds most most
recconised song His poetry is also appealing
because there are normaly catchy rhymes. Banjo Paterson was one of
only two boys in his family his brother was named Hamilton Paterson There was Harrison, who made his pile when Pardon won the cup,
The old man with his hair as white as snow;
But few could ride beside him when his blood was fairly up --
He would go wherever horse and man could go.
And Clancy of the Overflow came down to lend a hand,
No better horseman ever held the reins;
For never horse could throw him while the saddle-girths would stand,
He learnt to ride while droving on the plains.
