April Poem-A-Day Challenge  Day 18

prompt: I am ...

I am the woman
from over the river

who in 1958 had no idea
there would be
Cummeragunja girls

singing soul, living it,
in Vietnam for the troops.

I may well have played
with them - volleyball
not music. 

A reference to the film "The Sapphires"
which I watched today on the IPad
provided by the airline in our 767-333
flight from Perth to Melbourne.
