Mystic Marmalade

Mystic marmalade

On a holiday in Denmark
In west Australia
I’m sitting by the river
And how my heart does stir
As it rises from the water
And heads toward the sun
The mist in the early morning
As the dawn has just begun.

The river looks so peaceful
With Its blanket made of mist
There’s beauty in this magic
That I cannot resist
The sky is mystic marmalade 
As the sun it shows its face
A pelican comes floating past
All filled with wondrous grace.

The seagulls squabble on the land
It’s what they always do
As the sun it climbs much higher
On his morning so brand new
This mystic morning magic
Brings much healing to my soul
As this morn with all its splendor
Makes me feel so very whole.
