I'm drowning in the sunshine as it pours down from the skies,
There's something stirring in my heart ~ bright colours fill my eyes,
As from here to the far horizon your beauty does unfold,
And oh, you look so lovely, dressed in green and gold.

And I can almost touch the ocean, Shimmering in the distant haze
as I stand here on this mountain on this loveliest day of days.
Round half the world I've drifted, left no wild oats unsown,
but now my view has shifted and I think I've just come home.

To the homeless and the hungry may you always open doors,
may the restless and the weary find safe harbour on your shores.
May you always be my dream-time place ~ our spirit's glad release,
May you always be our shelter, may we always live in peace.

~Eric Bogle
