Far North Of Koroit

Far north of Koroit near the City of Warrnambool
In Millstreet Town in Duhallow i went to primary school
Going back in time more than fifty years ago
That the years seem to fly at least it does seem so
The lust of wander has taken me far south
Of the place of the badger, the rook and the shy river trout
And of the old fields i may never walk on again
The memories are all that with me now remain
The boy of the fifties showing his years in gray
And surely he has known a far better day
And the now is all that does matter since the past it has gone
And life all around me as usual goes on
A magpie is warbling on a sunlit gum tree
And Nature's great beauty is all around me.
