From Listening To Nature

From listening to Nature great insights we gain
The crickets are singing to tell us of rain
The sky clouded over at gloam of the day
And from us rain cannot be too far away
Nature from us many of her secrets does hide
And to look into her soul great scientists have tried
But of her best kept secrets they never will know
Our wonder of Nature it only does grow
Her billions of insects that crawl, hop and fly
Her many species of animals and birds of the sky
And all things of Nature relate in some way
The theory of relativity as Einstein used to say
And the songs of the little dark crickets i hear
To tell me that rain to us is very near.

From Living Life And Nature

From living life and Nature we learn every day
And we never do stop learning or so 'twould seem that way
Till the Reaper decides our time is up whenever that will be
In Nature every day we live new wonders for to see
I have lived for many Seasons since to manhood I did grow
But of life and Nature I realize so little I do know
It is not for the love of song or for the joys of Spring
But to proclaim their borders the wild born birds do sing
From the wise mentors of our younger years great insights we did gain
Lessons they learned from life passed down to us for life with us remain
But the more you get to know the little you know you know you come to realize
And that knowledge can be humbling should not come as a surprise
Natural knowledge is for everyone not for the chosen few
And from life and Nature every day we learn something new.

From Living Life It Does Seem

From living life it does seem we learn every day
And for our life experiences some price we have to pay
We learn from our every mistake though to us they come at a cost
And little point in lamenting on to us what has been lost,
Some very wealthy people have gone bankrupt of them more than a few
The riches to rags stories one might say are nothing new
Come tell me who in their right mind would embrace poverty?
Without money one is powerless that's how it seems to me
Some say in life we have to learn to give as well as to receive
I like their sort of thinking and on such I do believe
That we all cannot be millionaires so happens to be true
But to those who never harm anyone some credit ought be due
From life we pay to learn is fact and fact does never lie
And we never stop learning until the day we die.

From Melbourne To Adelaide

I'd packed my tent in the gray dawn of the morning and put it in the car booth ready for the road
The kookaburra laughed on the black wattle and cock bantam in a backyard nearby crowed
Seven to eight hours driving through the outback before I'd reach the hills near Adelaide
And from there an hour at least to the inner suburbs in suburban traffic expect to be delayed

Australians say that Adelaide from Melbourne is after all not all that far away
And 800 K's is not that long a distance some of them even have been known to say
But to one from a small and distant Country a nine hour journey in a motor car
Would be a task he or she would not relish if they had never driven half that far.

From Melbourne to Adelaide in Summer from 8 a.m. 'til dusk the sun blaze in the sky
And from Dimboola to Nhill the flat and open Mallee from months of drought is looking brown and dry
And for miles on either side of the South Australian border the sunburnt paddocks looking very bare
And in the shadows of lone gum the sheep assembled their only respite from the sun is there.

The cock bantam in the yard nearby was crowing and kookaburra laughed on wattle tree
And grey shrike thrush was singing on the Blackwood the plain looking bird has the sweetest melody
As I packed my tent for the highway to Adelaide 800 K's or maybe more away
And 800 K's is not such a long distance at least that's what you hear some Aussies say.
