Melbourne Summer Twilight



Melbourne, she gathers strength as she goes
But where has the Pleasure Gardens gone?

The attitude and disapproval of forgotten times linger
No more holidaying for the diggers on the hunt for a bit of fun

Private enterprise will build the bridge

A wooden toll bridge
Bluestone and granite
Then removed replaced and reinforced

Finally, the possessive apostrophe was remove
The lost and whispering magnificence of 19th-century Melbourne
