The Roadway From Belgrave To Emerald - Poem by Francis Duggan

The roadway from Belgrave to Emerald is narrow and twisty and high
And the tall gums that border it in Selby they almost seem to touch the sky
A dangerous road for to drive on for people who dare to drive fast
Their luck finally runs out on them good luck never does seem to last
The high road from Belgrave to Emerald where automobiles accidents are rife
On that stretch of road the reaper is at every corner there he has claimed many a life
It has been awhile now since I've driven there eight or closer to nine years ago
It is not a good road for to drive on more pleasurable drives i do know,
From Belgrave up as far as Menzies Creek it is uphill all of the way
Yet the scenery there it is breathtaking on a clear and a sunny day
I do miss the famed Yarra Ranges a place that i knew and loved well
But the high and narrow roads there for to drive on one might say as stressful as hell
And of the high and narrow road from Belgrave to Emerald unpleasant memories with me do remain
And 'tis not something i would not look forward to for to drive on that roadway again.
