    Australian 'Alps'!
    Knee high to the grandeurs
    of elsewhere,
    ours anyway.

    But nowhere else
    is that smell
    of the gum gullies
    in the rain,
    the flashing scarlet
    of the King Parrot

    Breathing deep
    the sharp clarity
    of the 'High Country',
    standing in the cloudmist
    raining about me.

    Looking down, down
    at the falling away
    of the granite cliffs
    of Mt. Buffalo,
    disappearing into
    the swirling cloud,
    fading edges of boulders huge,
    my lady laughing beside me.
    Moist, happy eyes
    mingling with the rain.
