Transcript of Andy`s gone with cattle

By Henry Lawson (17/6/1867-2/9/1922)
Summary By James Luu "Andy`s Gone with cattle" Welcome to my Presentation about
"Andy`s gone with cattle" by Henry Lawson.

First Iam going to show the poem in my words.

This is my First Prezi Presentation
So bear with me. Hi! So what I know about "Andy`s Gone with Cattle" is that its a Ballad about a male named Andy and he bring a Cattle all the way tho the Queensland border (where the water is) because it`s thirsty Basic Information Henry Lawson Has also used Some Poetic Tecniques In his Long Poem like.

`gainst Drought, The red marauder; (Metaphor)
"Who now shall wear the cheerful *face*,
In times when things are blackest,
and who shall whistle round the *place*" (Rhyme)
"And may the good angels send the rain
On desert streches sandy
And when Summer comes again" (Assonance) Poetic techniques in this poem My Favorite line is "And may the good angels send the rain"

Because it means that the skies are raining in a good way, My Favorite line Next We are showing two words that you may not know that are from this Poem

Dejection:A Sad and Depressed State.
Squatter:A Person or Thing who Squats. Words you probably don`t
understand This the the picture i found suitable enough for this Poem Why? Because Andy is with a cattle walking from the desert to the Water (Queensland) Border and a man riding a horse in the middle of nowhere seems to be close enough Thank you For watching my Prezi Presentation
About Andy`s gone with cattle I would like to wish good luck to the other presenters who will be presenting today BYE! The poem Our Andy's gone with cattle now
Our hearts are out of order
With drought he's gone to battle now
Across the Queensland border
Who now shall wear the cheerful face
In times when things are blackest
And who shall whistle round the place
When Fortune frowns her blackest
Poor Aunty's looking thin and white
And Uncle's cross with worry
And poor old Blucher howls all night
Since Andy left Macquarie
And may good angels send the rain
On desert stretches sandy
And when the summer comes again
God grant 'twill bring us Andy.
