The Lovely Rose Of Koroit - Poem by Francis Duggan

She left her Hometown in the Moyne Shire for places far away
The Lovely Rose of Koroit where might she be today
The wanderlust in her young mind for bigger towns and cities elsewhere
To appease her sense of adventure in the bigger World out there

She left Koroit Town in October in the prime of the Spring
When the nesting birds on bushes and trees had their songs for to sing
And though that was more than two years ago and from Koroit she now does live afar
Koroit's young males still talk of her in the Commercial Pub and Mickey Bourke's Bar

The attractive Rose of Koroit with lovely eyes of brown
And shoulder length wavy raven hair the Pride of Koroit Town
She left Koroit in the Moyne Shire but memories of her beauty there remain
And what is a loss to her home-place is the bigger World's gain

The lovely Rose of Koroit free of conceit and guile
Tall graceful and attractive with charm in her smile
She went to follow her dreams to places far away
But she is remembered with fondness in her Hometown today.
