Up from the green water here we clambered Say the hands and the bodies of the hands, to hold and to touch, And here we camped, and here we shall be remembered.</p> <p>And they are so close and yet so far and wild They seem to breathe and speak for all humanity Who made their camp so, man and woman and child, And flowed with the green river down to infinity; And beautifully and terribly they wave In the black rock, like hands alive in a grave.</p> <p>Cave Painting: Glossary Waver sway, shake or tremble Beckon to signal or summon Startling disturbing, surprising Clambered climbed</p> <p>6</p> <p>POEM 1: CAVE PAINTING ACTIVITIES OVERVIEW: Write a brief summary of the poem Cave Painting by Douglas Stewart details a distinctive image of aged hand prints on a cave wall. THREE LEVEL GUIDE QUESTIONS Cave Painting Question set 1. LEVEL 11. What are the dark hands in the black rock?</p> <p>The dark hands in the black rock are painted hand prints. LEVEL 2 2. Who made the hand prints? It is inferred that the hand prints were made by Aboriginal Australians. 3. What is distinctive about the use of the word in? The word in is distinctive because usually the word on would be used. This implies the hand prints are part of the cave wall. LEVEL 34. What does this image connect humanity with? And how does it do it?</p> <p>Stewart has created an image of hand prints in the rock rather than on the rock. This deliberate word choice suggests that humanity once had a deep and unbreakable bond with nature.</p> <p>CONVERT YOUR ANSWERS INTO A STRUCTURED PARAGRAPH</p> <p>In the first line of the poem Cave Painting by Douglas Stewart, a distinctive visual image is created through specific word choice: dark hands in the black rock. The dark hands refer to Aboriginal hand prints on a cave wall. The word in is distinctive because usually the word on would be used. This implies the hand prints are part of the cave wall. This deliberate word choice suggests that humanity once had a deep and unbreakable bond with nature.</p> <p>7</p> <p>Cave Painting Question set 2. LEVEL 11. What is distinctive about the first line of the second stanza And they are so close and yet so far and wild?</p> <p>The first line of the second stanza seems to contradict itself. LEVEL 22. To what image does the word they refer? The word they refers to Aborigines of the past.</p> <p>3. Explain how the hands are both close and yet far away at the same time. The hands are physically close because the persona can see them. However, they are symbolically far away because those that left them on the wall have long since disappeared. LEVEL 3 4. What does this imply about how humans have changed from when cave painting was made? This dual image implies that when the hand prints were made, humanity had a deep connection with nature that is slowly disappearing. This loss should be cause for concern.CONVERT YOUR ANSWERS INTO A STRUCTURED PARAGRAPH</p> <p>The first line of the second stanza seems to contradict itself, And they are so close and yet so far and wild. This is deliberate in creating a dual image for the reader. The hands are physically close because the persona can see them. However, they are symbolically far away because those that left them on the wall have long since disappeared. This dual image implies that when the hand prints were made, humanity had a deep connection with nature that is slowly disappearing. This loss should be cause for concern.</p> <p>8</p> <p>Cave Painting Question set 3. LEVEL 11.

The poem Cave Painting uses specific language choices, dual images, symbolism and _ _ _ _ _ _ to create an image that implicitly grieves over mans diminishing relationship with nature. In the first line of the poem Cave Painting by Douglas Stewart, a distinctive visual image is created through specific word choice: dark hands in the black rock. The dark hands refer to Aboriginal hand prints on a cave wall. The word in is distinctive because usually the word on would be used. This implies the hand prints are part of the cave wall. This deliberate word choice suggests that humanity once had a deep and unbreakable relationship with nature. It is this relationship that Stewart laments the degradation as the poem continues. The first line of the second stanza seems to contradict itself, And they are so close and yet so far and wild. This is deliberate in creating a dual image for the reader. The hands are physically close because the persona can see them. However, they are symbolically far away because those that left them on the wall have long since disappeared. This dual image is therefore commenting and lamenting the ever increasing gap between humanity and the natural world. ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________</p> <p>In conclusion Stewart has used the forms and features of poetry to create the distinctive image where the hands of the past are fused with black rock. This image comments on mans past intimate relationship with nature, and laments its continuing degradation over time.</p> <p>10</p> <p>POEM 2: Lady Feeding the Cats 1 Shuffling along in her broken shoes from the slums, A blue-eyed lady showing the weathers stain, Her long dress green and black like a pine in the rain, Her bonnet much bedraggled, daily she comes Uphill past the Moreton Bays and the smoky gums With a sack of bones on her back and a song in her brain To feed those outlaws prowling about the Domain, Those furtive she-cats and t...</p>
