Glen Forbes

Glen Forbes in the high country ten kilometres from the sea
A place of natural beauty and of marvellous scenery
With houses in the valley and brown hills all around
Amongst the high country of South Gippsland such beauty to be found.

In Glen Forbes after daybreak amongst the blackwood trees
The magpies notes are carrying in the freshening morning breeze
A place free of pollution no black smog in the sky
And larks above the brown hills are carolling as they fly.

Through Glen Forbes in South Gippsland the narrow roads wind up and down
Eighty kilometres from the suburbs and twenty from Wonthaggi town
A twenty minute car drive at most from the ocean shore
And the only sign of commerce there is the one small General Store.

Across the hills of Glen Forbes the healthy sea winds blow
It would be nice to live there and Nature's peace to know
And though I am just a visitor I will carry with me
The beauty of old Glen Forbes and it's marvellous scenery.

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
