Rainforest Song by Libby Hathorn


(After a boat trip down the Franklin River in Tasmania)


Oh don’t bring down

the ancient pine,

the breath of life

that’s yours and mine!


Don’t tear it out

saw it down,

gouge it, chop it,

let it drown.


Don’t fell the tree

that’s stood so long,

leave bird and bush

where they belong.


Leave the forest,

green gold place,

the glow of hope

on this earth’s

old face.
