Canberra Autumn

Land of the singing light
Light that first I saw
Eighty years and more
Some pain but more delight
What did I come here for?
How soon will it be night?
So many that I know
Like autumn leaves they fly –
Wide over-arching sky
Accept the pledge I owe
To live until I die
To thank before I go.
