Quiet the night that creeps descending
On limpid waters mirrored with the days
And soft the petal falls drifting in lights
Tracing luminous margins on grey tinged
Clouds that float across pearlescent skies.
While mournful is the curlews’ cry that beckons
In the darkness and stills the daylights’ clamour
with an inky velvet cloak that wraps gently
round the lotus fringed waters of the Kakadu plains
