Dear Maiden-hair I See You There

Dear Maiden-hair I see you there
in amongst the bracken fern and wattle seed
and I wonder what you say to me
about new life under the Keeper tree?
the ground-growth is fresh and bright
but all canopies were burnt that night.
Now, we hear you whisper to the air,
we saw you looking in the nest of grass
so we tell you truly it was a happy day,
when 2 whistler chicks flew away.
The kangaroos have returned,
they bound around but don't eat ferns
we are safe and waiting for soaking rain
so birds will fly the sky again.
