Man to Land

Ellie Carless

Geelong Grammar School

Velvet minds paint the night,

Stones of heart shall show no fight

But throw that stone to the sea,

A tree aloft spring from thee

For in thy nature man is found,

Bound eternally, perplexed in sound

The west wind brings the chill to hinder,

A morbid air of coming winter

Imbue the day, beyond thee be

Man and nature, eternally

For in thy nature man is found

Bound eternally, perplexed in sound
