Thanks, John. Fabulous depiction of your splendid country. I love the rhythm of this one and I felt the pain of those people loosing their cattle. Thanks for introducing me to a new poet as well. I have never read a piece of yours where I did not give thanks to God for you and this one is dear to my soul. Beautiful images, John, spiced with your own obvious love for your country This is a beautiful depiction of your country, John. The imagery is so diverse in each stanza, makes the reader realize how diverse the country might be.
I always had a fascination for the Great Barrier Reef, and it saddens me that it is in bad shape now. Thoroughly enjoyed this.
I like diversity in landscape and nature and the landscape you highlighted here is one I have not lived in. It has always been water for me so the land Noah forgot is so fascinating. It is a pity that we have only been to Sydney. Maybe next visit but as you say, it is a bit far from Canada. Ann, thank you for reading. I am glad my words brought back memories and enabled you to imagine yourself in Australia.

I used to live very close to the Glass House Mountains at a place called Bellthorpe and looking straight ahead from the sloping backyard they were immediately in front of us. I hope you enjoy your next trip on the Indian Pacific and Ghan. What a beautiful poem about a varied and beautiful land. I have seen the Glass House Mountains, I love the scent of the eucalyptus trees, I've seen and heard kookaburras and I love the vastness of it all. You brought it all back to me with your well-crafted words, John. Thank you for rekindling those memories. I shall be back in Australia next February; my sister and I are travelling on the Indian Pacific for the 2nd time!

We're then going from Darwin to Cairns to see the Reef then down to Sydney and the Blue Mountains; I'm so excited about it all, especially as I thought my visit last December - March would be the last of all. Lovely poem John.
I can see the countryside in my minds eye, as I read. Australia is such a beautiful country. Other product and company names shown may be trademarks of their respective owners.

John Hansen more. Click thumbnail to view full-size. The Land That Noah Forgot A sombre land of silent glass hills, where the mountain brumbies run By winding tracks, on hillsides steep, the home of the Eucalypt gums. And the breeze whistles through the tall she-oaks as the river below sings its songs. A watchful land where the hills keep guard, surveying the landscape so grand Like those who rest by the campfire at night, stretched out on the warm desert sand, And in the night sky, the Southern Cross shines, and all is at peace with the land.
An eerie land where the ghost gums haunt, and all sound itself seems dead, And a lone grey hawk, like a homeless soul, hovers noiselessly, overhead And the land's great story is left untold, save for gossip and folktales that spread.
The Animals Noah Forgot, First Edition
The lower plains stretch for miles, flat and vast, where the hardy saltbush grows, Or the land instead maybe blackened and burnt, where the uncontrolled bushfires go, Of false mirages or great hopes deferred - in the land where you never know. A land of abundance, or land of despair, a game of reliance on chance, Where Nature provides or Nature destroys, like a rocky, unstable romance. Where creatures are hardy and built to survive, and emus and brolgas still dance. And kookaburras' laughter echoes on the breeze, and warns of a danger nearby, And drovers moved on, in the midst of the drought, but the farmers are just left to cry.
At the smell of the rain as it dampens the dust, where the bones of the dead cattle lie. So, this is the land that Noah forgot, a place where the flood never touched. A continent so far removed from the rest, with true natural beauty its crutch. It's a land of such vastness, and climate extremes, the Australia that I love so much.
Off the Shelf At first, I wasn't going to include this poem in my "Off the Shelf" series as it strayed somewhat from the format I have been using so far. Questions must be on-topic, written with proper grammar usage, and understandable to a wide audience. Excellent poem and amazingly beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing! So glad you enjoyed this poem, Alicia. Thank you for the kind words. Thank you so much, Bill. Yes, I do love my country, and glad that showed. This is one of your best. God bless you. Sincerely, Tim. Thank you, Anita.
