Transcript: 

Oh! If ever on some future day,
When after a herd you may happen to stray,
Where lone and forgotten poor Jack’s bones are laid 
Far, far from the land where in childhood he played 
Tread lightly where the wattles, their sweet fragrance shed 
And tall gum trees shadow the stockman’s last bed.
