One Might Say I've Travelled Far - Poem by Francis Duggan

One might say I've travelled far from my old home
But I've not been to Paris or Berlin or Rome
And though I live far from where I first saw light of day
I've not been to Capetown, Baghdad or Bombay,
I've heard the magpie flute with his silvery bill
And I've seen the gray roos bound up a bracken hill
And I've seen the koala on a manna gum tree
And father emu with his young dappled family
Still I've not heard the lions roaring or the jackals bark
Or seen the wildebeest and zebra in Serengeti Park
So many cities and places that to I have not been
And many of Nature's Wonders I cannot claim to have seen
And though from my old home I have ventured far south
Of any great World adventures I cannot tell you about.
