My vision splendid


Scent of eucalypts
Whistling whisper of the wind
This is my country

Who is that laughing?
It is the kookaburra
I am home again

Kangaroos jumping
Eagles soaring overhead
Silence of the bush

Sky is wide and blue
The sun warms my heart and soul
My vision splendid

You glance up at me
Tanned Shiela grinning now
You're my eveything

Note:
"Vision splendid" is from the poem "Clancy of the Overflow" by Banjo Paterson
"Shiela" is Australian slang for pretty girl (Yes, it is spelt that way)
