Early Morning Light – a poem

Photos taken in the Solomon Islands, Adelaide, Port Lincoln, Lord Howe Island, Apollo Bay, Mt Buffalo, the Victorian high country, the Otways and Port Campbell.

You’re the stillness in the trees,

You’re my gentle offshore breeze,

You’re the birdsong that sends the night away,

You’re the promise it’s all right,

You’re my early morning light,

You are my early morning light.

Lizzie is the loving and much loved mother of these two (and the adored grandmother of their children).
This photo was taken in the late afternoon light, with Liz by my side.

The poem is the chorus of a song I wrote for Lizzie in 2015 to mark our 40th year together. The song has only been sung in public once, and that was in an Apollo Bay Open Mic Sunday Afternoon Session in the RSL club rooms around the anniversary of our 40 years together.

This post marks 45 years together.
