Port Fairy's Rose

Her shoulder length wavy hair is as dark as the wing of a crow
The Pride of the Town where the Moyne waters flow
On towards Griffith Island to the Pacific shore
The rivers of Nature flow forever more

The eyes are as blue as the ripe Autumn sloes
Of the beautiful one known as Port Fairy's Rose
Single at twenty one a few years from her life's prime
For falling in love and marriage and children she has plenty of time

Yet of her great beauty she does not seem aware
Her sort of person nowadays does seem rather rare
So charming and unpretentious and she does seem carefree
That humility is a great gift would you not agree

Without dyes or makeup she is what you see
She does look quite natural as natural as can be
Of all of the Moyne Roses she has been voted the best
Port Fairy's Rose of Victoria's south west.
