The Web Poetry Corner - Lee Emmett - Terra Australis

Terra Australis

by

Lee Emmett



Leave now the lyrebirds in the mists singing
Set out in silence, south first, to Gippsland
Great granite boulders, Sealers Cove, Oberon,
Magnificent sentinels standing in Tasman.

Guided by the Southern Cross head north to desert lands
Follow the rhythmic drone of didgeridoos
And with each footstep the sharpening of senses
Drink and breathe deeply as wisdom unfolds

Now it is your turn to wander, a nomad,
Discovering our sacred earth, singing her songs,
Uluru's calling, red rock, our centre,
Heart of Australia, drawing us home.

(For Anne)
