I recentlly heard a song called "Poor Fellow My Country". It was from a poem by Ted Egan and the music was composed by Margaret Bradford.

The poem is beautiful and the music fits it nicely. I can work out the lyrics. What I am interested in is: Who are the poet and music composer? Do they go back a long way are are they relatively recent? Is Egan Aboriginese? The poem is from an Aboriginal point of view.

Thanks,

Murray
