A love affair with life-


I have a love affair with life-
it's taught me secret things-
it speaks of long ago-
and what the future brings-

I have a love affair with life-
it's taught me in my youth-
to hunger after freedom-
and be a seeker after truth.

I have a love affair with life-
I hope it never goes away-
it finds me living right-
it brought where I am today.

I have a love affair with life-
though it's brought me pain and sorrow-
there's nothing I wouldn't give-
to catch a glimpse of my tomorrow.

I have a love affair with life-
the gifts it gives are free-
it gives me sun, air and water-
best of all, it brought you to me!

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
