Le "Bismarck" et le "Hood"



Aujourd'hui, le 'Bismarck', avec son capot (le 'Hood'), flotte calmement le long du fleuve. Le capot maintient le moteur sec, et nous pouvons voir encore plus de photos du plus long fleuve dans la Terre, Large et Brune. Nous pouvons voir le Bismarck avec le chancelier allemand, Otto von Bismarck, à la barre, et avec Kapitän zur See Ernst Lindemann qui cherche n'importe quels signes de vie.
Henry Lawson a dit, une fois:-
...Cette petite poésie, ci-dessous, vous devez lire en anglais parce que cela me prendra un an pour traduire pour vous...sorry !

Henry Lawson, le 17 juin 1867 - le 2 septembre 1922, était un auteur australien et un poète. Avec son contemporain, Banjo Paterson, Lawson est parmi les poètes australiens les plus connus et les auteurs de fiction de la période coloniale.

Today, the 'Bismarck', with its 'Hood', is ambling down the river Darling, (the hood keeps the motor dry), and we can see some more photos of the longest river in the Wide, Brown Land. Here is the Bismarck with the German chancellor Otto von Bismarck at the helm and Kapitän zur See Ernst Lindemann in looking for any signs of life..
Henry Lawson once said:-

The skies are brass and the plains are bare,
Death and ruin are everywhere;
And all that is left of the last year's flood
Is a sickly stream on the grey-black mud;
The salt-springs bubble and the quagmires quiver,
And this is the dirge of the Darling River.

Fantastic Darling ! he he. The first one is definitely of the Indiana Jones ilk.

Oh M B - your interpretation of history is a tad naughty - love it!!!

Considering how long these men have been traveling on this river they look pretty good.

Henry Lawson once lived in Waverton, a suburb of Sydney. I onced lived in that house at 28 Euroka Street. It was a gorgeous sandstone terrace house then owned by one of Australia's novelists - Robert Drewe. For all I know, Drew may still own it.
