Falls country


Jamison Creek, Darwin's Walk, Wentworth Falls

Words to Walk with:
From Falls Country by Judith Wright
I had an Aunt and Uncle
bought up on the Eastern Fall.
They spoke the tongue of the falls-country
sidelong, reluctant as leaves.
Trees were their thoughts;
peppermint-gum, black-salley,
white tea-tree hung over creeks.

    I love these scenes. They're so tranquil, even when the water isn't. Ahhhh...

  7. That is just how country folk converse: "sidelong, reluctant as leaves". I wonder if she meant between Dungog and Tamworth as the Eastern falls country?
