Australia in SIMPLICITY

The splash of spring flowers spreads over the ground

Rich gold of the wattle and green of the land

On and on is the landscape planned

With pinks and blues, all colours abound

This, oh this is the land for me

Australia in simplicity

The whirr of galah as it wings through the trees

Down through the gully, its screech echoes there

On and on in the evening glare

The bird flies by with a following breeze

This, oh this is the land for me

Australia in simplicity

The sound of a brumby as it drums and it taps

as the rhythm beats out a gallops refrain

on and on o’er the open plain

behind him the scubas of the spinifex flats

This, oh this is the land for me

Australia in simplicity

The thud of a ‘roo as it bounds through the brush

and crosses the creek where the creek tumbles free

on and on to the waiting sea

the river roars on with a reckless ruch

This, oh this, is the land for me

Australia in simplicity

This page is a tribute to my grandmother Dawn Crabb, who was born in 1926 and passed away August 11th 1997. It will feature her poems from her Rainbows End book, and will hopefully be able to share excerpts from her book The way to St Werburgh’s : A short history of George Edward Egerton Warburton who is my great great great grandfather
