Places I Have Been - Poem by George Savige

I've been through Biloela
And out through Mungindi.
I've seen the earth all cracking
Beneath a cloudless sky.

I've sailed the seas off Sydney
Within a fishing boat.
I've spent some time in Melbourne
And wore my heavy coat.

I've seen it snow in Moe
And froze all through the night.
I've holidayed in Moree
Where people treat you right.

But sometimes in December,
I shut my eyes and sigh,
For I can still remember
The dog at Gundagai.
