The Kookaburras Laugh


Gaele Arnott

The Kookaburra laughs at me
from the top of the tree.
His words of laughter sing to me
of the days from long ago.
He brings the message to my heart
of things I need to know.
He shares the knowledge of this great land
before white man came.
He passes words of wisdom, to me
that I may understand
how precious is the earth
on which my feet now stand.
His song tells of the glorious scarifice
that many trees did make
to hold the soil together, before the avent of man.
He brings stories of volcanoes,
of cyclonic winds and storms,
that whirled across the planes
to form the vibrational sounds, created within this land.
The Kookaburra reminds me
that these vibrations are also within me,
as I, the proud Australian
learn the history of the land.
The history of Australia, now told to me
sits strong within my mind.
It is time to share the knolwedge
with others of my kind.
It is time to share the vibrations
and the Knolwedge of Australia
with others of our kind.
It is time that other nations
understand that what we share, here with one another
is also their joy to share.
The sun shines brightly upon my head,
the Kookaburra laughs at me,
as he flies from his place in the tree,
to another tree in another place
where in laughter he may share his knowledge
with another such as me.
