Whispering ghosts of the West, Who brought you here to our land?

Songs of the East Coast, 1947: Val Vallis

I am of the east-coast country;

Not from the great cities that play Faust,

With flats for souls, but where the Queensland hills

Bite the blue skies with their emerald teeth,

And where the sun sets witches’ fires on the waterline.

Here I was born.
