Australia - The Original Australians - Poem by Paul Warren

Australian aborigines do not see time in a straight line
They see the seasons connecting each other in their mind
And know when to hunt and when to gather
Being tied to the land and its spirit did matter
So at certain times during each year
They would sing their ceremonies for the land held so dear
For them the singing was done all the day through
And in doing so they would ensure the land's spirit would renew
