Through the Eyes of a Local

Image Hosting by PictureTrail.com

You don't have to old to reminisce
You don't have to look back
and say "The old days were the best"
The old buildings were beautiful
The sea was greener
The beach was cleaner
The streets were calmer

We have lost much
there is no doubt
destruct and re-build
is the motto of today
Preserve those buildings called heritage
charge us to see them, if not miss out !

But let us focus on the young
There is still much to experience
much to see of what was once history
of this colony of Port Phillip
Remnants still stand of the past
They can be rekindled
Excitement can be generated

Let us take the young with photos in hand
history in the written word
Use their imagination
to draw, to write in poetry perhaps
of what it was that made up who they are today
Their ancestors from countries afar and beyond
made this the place they call home
They can and will be inspired of tales so wonderous
perhaps like fairy stories of long ago
But with all in truth they come to life,
thre is excitement,drama, pathos and above all hope
in times often hard to imagine.
Memories never die, but they need to be captured
from those who still remember grow old.
