Bush Poetry fans, like myself, might be familiar with Henry Lawson's 1897 poem "The Lights of Cobb & Co.", with an extract as follows - 'The trot, trot, trot and canter, as down the spur we go - The green sweeps to horizons blue that call for Cobb & Co - But on the bank to westward a broad triumphant glow - A hundred miles shall see tonight the lights of Cobb & Co.'
