Wild Jim

Wild Jim came down from the hill, came down bent and white,
He had spent his life under southern mountain light.
No more creeks to cross on frozen morning, under punishing pack,
No more climbing through bush bent and aching, and falling back.
He was done with that now, too old to carry the load,
His trigger worn, his beard silvered, he could not be blowed,
I leave it to you lot, he said, Iíll give it away,
You can take the rifle and the deer at dawn,
You can have the mountain in the mist at the last of day.

He told the warbler, the tui and the robin, he wonít see them anymore,
And they replied, wonít you go back Jim, back down the river, back along the track,
He said damn the river, and damn the track,
Damn the Arawhata, and the Kaipo and the Pyke and the Skipper black,
While the mountains still glower and rivers rise and run,
Iím getting out before the floods, and before the snow has come.

He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
Sounds like a typical hunting trip !
