Tales from the Top End - Ubirr Rock

Ubirr Rock

The stillness. The serenity of this place.
Sacred and mysterious.
Careful quiet footsteps
where ancient ones trod before.
Do I see what they saw?
(The ancient ones, what was it they saw?)
Do I see what they saw?
(The ancient ones, what was it they saw?)
Silent echoes not only the thoughts and dreams
of those who tread these rocks and sand,
But the history and the mystery,
the dreaming of this land
The land changes
but the stories remain unchanged;
The stories and the ambience;
still, serene and sacred;
A taste of the unexplained mysteries
for the uninitiated, here at Ubirr!
