In 100 Years From Now
In 100 years from now
There will be pig, goat and cow
And donkey, horse, sheep, rabbit and hare
Though many wild birds and animals may be rare.
In 100 years from now there will be wallaby and roo
Currawong, finch, rosella and cockatoo
Turkey, swan and duck and goose
Wombat, badger, bear and moose.
In 100 years from now there will be bushes, shrubs and trees
And rivers will flow to the seas
And in Spring birds will sing every day
But my bones with Nature will lay.
And barn owl will be seen at night
In the pale moonlight ghostly white
And birds will sing in wind and rain
And breeding frogs will sing in the flooded drain.
In 100 years from now waders from the northern shore
Will Winter in the sunny south and in Spring fly home to breed once more
And sparrows will chirp in the hedge by the house
And the house cat will stalk the bird and the mouse.
