Mt Napier

It was from a great artist Mt Napier got it's name
But thousands of centuries before him great rivers of flame
Flowed down it's brown face leaving rocks here and there
For miles around in the flat countryside everywhere
Australia's first people must have looked on in awe
In fear and amazement at the wonder they saw
They must have felt their gods were angry with them for displaying such ire
To see the hills coughing up rivers of fire
The long dormant volcanic hills of the Southern Grampians Shire
Poets, storytellers and artists never cease to inspire
To South West Victoria the Seasons have come and the Seasons have gone
But the legends of Mt Eccles, Mt Rouse and Mt Napier live on
Today volcanic stones and rocks from past volcanic eruptions in numbers abound
From the hill of Mt Napier for many miles around.
