Treasure Island

Welcome To The South


A peep outside my window
Beautiful pictures crawls in
A perfect achitectural landscape
Lush lawn with green vegetation
One without end

Our land is green

Ceaseless stretches of blue sky
With an artistic spray of white…
Rays of sunlight adds glamour to the sky
Which in the beauty of its light shines
Not in the fury of its brightness

This is where the sun rises
Not where it sets

Our nights are without pitch-darkness
But one with the moon beam
Continously kissing the earth
With the majestic beauty of the moon
is our night beautifully designed

The regal splendour of the star
Gleefully glinting brightly up in the sky

On our skies,
Lies the gorgeous array of the stars
The beautiful beauty of the moon
And the regalia of the sun

Here in the south, can you see
The beauty of the sun, moon, stars
In the right doses

Welcome to the south

Poem of the Day

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;
