Phantom Falls Creek, Marysville


This land of ours so red and vast
Doth stretch before the eye
And show unto me all the beauty
Of a far and distant past.

Of gums so tall
And eucalypt
They tower o'er me
And sweet their fragrance to inhale
Their beauty for to see.

Oh yes, this precious land of mine
With all your beauty free
And listen to the sweet carol
Of birds in fancy free.

My country you are more to me
Than earth or fire or sky
For I shall love this land of yours
Until the day I die.

I'm glad you like the Marysville photos. It's one of my favourite places, and I wasn't near the fires. Thank you for asking. I wrote the poem last year, I write a bit of poetry every now and then.
Thank you for visiting my blogs, it always makes one feel happy when people have a look. Especially if they like what they see.
