West Australia, Our State

It feels good to take long strolls
It’s a pleasure to one’s soul
In the bushlands, it feels so great
We have much nature in our state
Here in the west we respect nature
Because nature has so much allure
Our wetlands we preserve and keep them clean
To walk along their trails, is so serene

In Perth, we have so many Kangaroos
You’ll find them in our parks, golf courses too
Walking those wetland trails is great to do
Sometimes I’ve walked these trails the whole day through

Many tiger snakes are here
But they don’t give me no fear
I’ve never felt danger from these
Though none should ever them displease
The birds found here they are so beautiful
I love to hear Kookaburras call
So many birds of colour you’ll find here
These wild, wild, places, I do hold so dear

West Australia is so very fine
Most who come here, they really love our wine
Sometimes our sun it tends to over shine
But all, in all our country is divine
That I always speak of as mine

G'day Silent. the cockney from Peckham that I was, this country became a paradise to me, and I have never regretted coming here. Perth is a real laid back place to live in. I have lived in Queensland, Sidney, and Melbourne. But to me this is really the best in my opinion. It would be nice to see you, my friend. all the best ..Peter

Peter, I was waiting for the Kookaburras call - the actual sound. Now I am looking for it on U-tube. I always thought kookaburra was a funny word that was an imaginary bird.

Hi Caren. if you heard these birds laughing as the dawn comes in, along with all the cockatoos and Lorikeets they would give you the shits. but I am up at four oclock so I don't mind at all. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend...Peter

Hi Darlene, we don't see many Koalas around here. But plenty of kangaroos, and some beautiful birds. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter
