Here In The Coastal Countryside

Here in the coastal countryside by Warrnambool
Far south of Millstreet Town where i went to school
Time has left me looking older and gray
One who has known of a far better physical day
Still i feel happy in this beautiful place
Where To many mine is a stranger's face
Though of some quite nice people of i am coming to know
Who happen to be blessed of the inner glow
Claraghatlea my first home-place today lives in me
In my flights of fancy the old fields i see
And see the brown trout in the clear pools of the rill
Flowing from high Claramore by Clara Hill
In fields where i grew to love Nature when i was a boy
And learning of her ways today i enjoy
Here in the home-place of koala and gray kangaroo
And long billed corella and yellow tailed black cockatoo.
