South Land

Have you hopped a plane to somewhere
that was far off overseas
Have you been to see the deserts and the snow?
Did you feel the South Land calling
on a whisper of the breeze
Did time away go past a little slow?

Have you been to see the Eiffel Tower
the glory that was Rome
Have you travelled up through many foreign lands?
Have you often felt there’s nowhere
quite as beautiful as home
with golden sunlight spilling on the sand?

Have you walked along a coastline
that is rugged and remote
seen the mighty ocean crashing on the shore?
Have you seen the desert sprawling
where mirages seem to float
Have you walked along a canyon’s shaded floor?

Have you been to see the Snowy’s
where the mountain tops are white
Have you seen the centre turn from red to green?
Have you walked the southern forests
in the dappled morning light
can you take in all the sights that you have seen?

You are standing on the South Land
it’s the oldest place on Earth
It’s riches are unique, pristine and rare
It cannot be explained in terms
of monetary worth
it simply is a land beyond compare
