Australia Day Poems
I guess you never notice
But I love this great big land
I love its sheer beauty
It’s so big and bloody grand
You have the Blue Mountains
And the Great Dividing Range
You have the Stirlings in the west
And the Flinders are so strange
And then there’s the Grampians
And the Hamersleys are there too
They’re so full of iron ore
The miners love them too
Then you have our rivers
The Murray comes to mind
A longer one I don’t think
You could ever find
Then you have the Avon
It runs so fast in flood
It only has a stony bottom
Cause it washed away the mud
Then you have our deserts
They’re all so hot and dry
You have to keep on waving
To keep away the flies
But when it rains out there
The wild flowers come to life
With all the colours of a rainbow
That stretch from sky to sky
It really is a wondrous place
This great big land of mine
From the mountains to the oceans
And all that’s bound in time
And you just know damn well
It’s the best you have ever seen
Because a better place there has never been.
Sweet Australia Day Poems
A day for all Australians the Government leaders do say
And people in their green and gold colors on Australia Day
In the town park the citizen band does play
And the sun shining bright in the sky blue and gray
A day for all Australians to celebrate
Tonight in the pubs they will party till late
But some Australian Indigenous leaders with this does not agree
And their point of view on the matter is not hard to see
Since the first fleet arrived in Australia from England two hundred and twenty six years ago
That dispossession has been their lot happens to be so
Perhaps Australia Day should be shifted to another date
A day that indigenous and non indigenous Australians could celebrate
Until this happens Indigenous Australians with some justification can say
That the twenty sixth of January to them is Invasion Day.

Tall towering gum trees blowing softly in the wind.
Rain that falls heavy causing the floods.
That’s all part of Australia. Its people are friendly, not cold.
The wind tells its stories of old, as it lifts the treetops and sways the reeds.
Farmers tilling the wheat fields planting their seeds.
Summer is gone and with it winter will be here again, gone are the dry winds and sun there will be the rains.
Day and month and years fly by so fast
Yet my country, wide rolling, fine and free will stand fast.
– Helen Tyler
I sit and dream of the Outback
A wondrous sight to see
To trek along those outback tracks
Far away from town and sea.
The starry nights, the wide blue sky
Purple ranges, glorious sunsets and white gum tree
Colours of Australia’s centre, just beautiful to the eye
From the top of Uluru, looks like a patchwork quilt to me.
Purple ranges, golden sunsets, glorious Kakadu
Australia’s outback – the centre Uluru
Red and white gum trees, beautiful sky of blue
Like patchwork quilt, made by me and you.
