Down Under

As I look up on the road again,
Southern lights dance on the barren plain.

Miles come and miles go,
Cloudless nights pass so very slow.

A promise pulls to the land's heart,
Far, far from journey's start.

Events and chance make emotions dance,
All aspects of adventure in a single glance.

Memories made and memories lost,
Journeys come at a unique cost.

    What you have here are rhyming couplets. For correct grammatical purposes, the second line in the second verse should read: "Cloudless nights pass so very slowly" To make the first line rhyme, why not add either "quickly" or "rapidly" to the end of that line? It's your work. This is just a friendly suggestion.
