Some Voices Of Nature

Some voices of Nature one should not get wrong
The songs of the magpies and the pied currawong
The magpie lark with his familiar pee wee
And who could mistake the blackbird's melody

When the red fox is barking in the dead of night
The boobook owl is calling in the moonlight
The voices of Nature can be heard night and day
And for as long as there is life it will be this way

A voice that all south eastern Australians know
The harsh prolonged cawing of the pale eyed crow
And the distinctive calls of the yellow tailed black cockatoo
The big dark brown parrots known to some as weerloo

And high on a branch of a manna gum tree
The male koala utters a harsh grunting cry to proclaim territory
The laugh of the kookaburra and the cough of the roo
And the guttural call of the male emu

Just some of the voices of Nature that are a joy for to hear
And Nature's voices can be heard at all times of year
Her wonders are many and her secrets not few
And every day of her we learn something new.
