The Bush Tracks of Australia by Jean F. Gillespie

| No TrackBacks
The bush tracks of Australia
   Run, dusty, through the day,
And whisper to the gum trees
   That guard their sun-kissed way.
They chatter with the breezes,
   And dance among the flowers;
And send their love songs ringing
   Through perfume-laden hours.

The bush tracks of Australia
   Run westward from the sea;
For they love the unbound bushland,
   That stretches wide and free.
They clamber to the hilltops,
   And wave at skies of blue;
And where the kookaburras laugh,
   You'll hear them laughing, too.

Oh, the bush tracks of Australia
   Go rambling through my heart;
They wave across the ocean,
   And smile when moonbeams dart.
They beckon in my dreaming,
   And no matter where I roam;
Their voices ever follow me.
   And call, "Come home, come home."
