I’ve Seen

I’ve seen the desert bloom with colour
I’ve seen the red land turn to green
I’ve seen the sunset’s wild abandon
The wide brown land is where I’ve been

I’ve seen the mountains cloaked in thunder
seen the mighty Fitzroy flow
seen the land they call ‘Down Under’
seen the whales that breach and blow

I’ve seen a land of open spaces
Seen the grassland wet with dew
seen a sea of smiling faces
felt the thing they call ‘true blue’

I’ve walked a mile upon the footsteps
pioneers trod once before
packed my swag in lonely places
pitched a tent upon the shore

I’ve walked the rim of Wolfe Creek Crater
rode the mighty Murray down
seen the ore they ship by freighter
seen the bridge in Sydney town

I’ve been away to foreign places
seen the world in other parts
but nothing there I’ve seen replaces
the wide brown land within my heart

      haha – yes unashamedly pro-Aussie. Actually I’m English but I love Australia.

        Being a cricket fan (and a follower of the England test team) I always say “I love all Australians, except for the eleven b*st*rds in the floppy green caps”. 😀
