Australia - Australia Day 2016 - Poem by Paul Warren

God's gift to me is I can stand
And drink in the air of this free land
In its soil that grows fresh produce green
That we sell to the world as it is clean

The people smile and laughter is found
As you travel Australia in a grand land round
Each January 26 dawns as our national day
In mid summer as we celebrate in our way

So it is at a barbecue all day
With a back yard pool to jump in and play
Or maybe it's at a cricket match watching the Aussie team
Then others will go to the beach as their holiday dream

All Australians revel in green and gold
As free and proud people as to the world we are bold!
