The smooth pale skin of the ghost gum trees

Glimmers faintly in the star strewn night

Leaves rustle softly in the night breeze

Catching the glint of the pale moonlight

Boobook owls call and frogmouths hoot

Wagtails sing to the rising moon

Koalas bellow while possums fight

And crickets chirrup a background tune

Rocks loom above the night time scrub

Wallabies dream in their rocky bed

The universe displayed in a pageant of light

Wheeling in majesty over my head

Standing in awe of an ancient night

Nature’s symphony of sight and sound

Praising the Creator’s artistic hand

Love for the land at last is found
