Between the rugged battlements of weather beaten rock, 
A waterfall has carved its path through solid granite block. 
That endless tone as water fell sure soothed one's weary soul, 
The cool clear pool beneath its walls was like a crystal bowl. 
Pandanus fringed its sandy edge, Swamp Paper Barks as well, 
Its everlasting solitude sure cast a pleasant spell. 
The intermittent song of birds sung melodies so sweet, 
So took a spell to sit a while,  to bathe my weary feet. 
In future times when I get down, if life should make me blue, 
I'll just recall that spot I saw, Gunlom, at Kakadu.
