There is a spirit that makes you roam
Far from your country, far from your home
It was this spirit that possessed him
And took him places he'd never been.
He dreamed of new plants, they filled his mind
Plants of every shape and kind
One's he'd never seen before
The wealth Australia had in store!
He listened to the native tongue
And learnt the language and their wisdom
The bush has lessons you have to learn
If to explore it is what you yearn.
He'd walk this land, explore it well
Discover secrets it had to tell
Lack of supplies stopped his quest
The Governor said, "He gave his best".
