Born under the stars

Born under the stars, among the ranges
Early morning light filters through the gums
Wild birds hover, looking for water
Bring warm sun across the desert
The first taste of a new life
Born unto this country

The ranges of this new country

Yet a country older than time
Gave birth to a child of the land
Give this child of the land and ranges love
The fire of the heart of a woman who gave birth to him
Gave him a family who will grow in the new land

The wilderness of the ranges was in his blood
Born under the stars of outback Australia
Left alone with his mother, while his father wandered
From station to station, camp to camp
Never returning, his mother died one lonely night
He had the blood of the outback tribes in him

Alone he wandered from tribe to tribe, growing
Learning the ways of many tribes
Giving him the hands of the spirits to lean on
He read the stars, he read the land
He learned to stand on his own

Red sands of the outback, born among the ranges
and the red gums, gave this child a home
He had fire in is heart to wander the land of his mother
His eyes were alert, for the winds and the fire of the outback
Legends of the outback, wander from tribe to tribe
Across many lands, this country give him the will to survive
So he could breathe the air of his land, the land his mother
Gave him in her spirit.

 

Born under the stars, among the ranges
Early morning light filters through the gums
Wild birds hover, looking for water
Bring warm sun across the desert
The first taste of a new life
Born unto this country

Older than time

  1. As I read the title and the first line, I thought maybe this was a post about the birth of Jesus Christ! But then, as I continued reading, I felt a sense of aimlessness as the child searched to discover who he was.

    With Jesus, He came with purpose already knowing who He was and what He was to accomplish through His life here on earth!
