    This from year 10. I was a young man with a longing for more than the school system could ever offer. I just wanted to find freedom for myself and create it for others.

    "Come dear children, come to me!
    Come over dry land,
    Come over deep sea.

    Come, dear children, come to me.
    Come from the forest,
    from every tree.

    Come dear children, come to me.
    Come all together or one by one
    Together we will escape,
    And be free!

    Come dear children, come to me!'

    This next one from when I was on an expedition into the rainforests of far northern Queensland with ANZSES, the (Now defunct) Australian and New Zealand Scientific Exploration Society. It has a bit of a rhythm to it, which just suits placing one foot in front of the other!

    'In the morning we will go
    Over mountains, valleys low.
    Bending backs, over streams.
    One by one, yet all a team.'

    Lovely thread. Brings back some fond memories.
