The Dark Moyne - Poem by Francis Duggan

By the Town of Port Fairy as ever it does flow
On towards the Pacific at Griffith Island it crawls deep, dark and slow
The river known as the Moyne that has inspired song, story and rhyme
That will flow on forever through the centuries of time
Long before there was a Town known as Port Fairy going back the centuries
On warm Summer evening in the shade of the trees
In weather temperatures over the thirty degrees
Australia's first people had their corroborees
To the music of their didgeridoos they no longer dance and sing
What a change a few centuries with it does bring
Time with it brings changes life is this way
No corroborees in Port Fairy today
But then some things in time do not change at all
The dark and deep Moyne to the ocean slowly and silently crawl.
