The Lure Of Venus Bay


If you drive through South Gippsland on the South Gippsland Highway
It might pay you to visit the Village of Venus Bay
A stone throw from the ocean of wide beaches with miles of strand
One of the quiet beauty spots of this great Southern Land.

I've travelled to quaint places off of the beaten track
But it is the lure of Venus Bay that always brings me back
The beach there never crowded and miles of open space
It is well worth a visit it is such a lovely place.

The last time I was in Venus Bay a couple of years ago
Up from the sunlit ocean a warm Summer wind did blow
The beach it was deserted the tide was rolling in
And the sea spray felt refreshing in my hair and facial
skin.

This Summer I must visit Venus Bay in January maybe
One of the quietest and prettiest places in South Gippsland by the sea
Relaxing for the body and soothing for the soul
Just a stone throw from the Village where the surf waves beach-wards roll.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
