The Woods Around Old Marysville

Posted Wednesday 2nd June 2010 at 03:35 by Francis Duggan
The woods around old Marysville are looking green again
Though bad memories of the massive fire with the survivors will remain
Of family members friends and neighbours that they never more will see
Black Saturday February the seventh 2009 etched in their memory
Of the day the huge fire came to Marysville burning homes to the ground
Bringing death and leaving blackness in the countryside for miles around
A tragic day for Marysville where many lives were lost
And to add to the grief of the survivors the huge financial cost
Marysville legacy of Black Saturday of Nature's deadly ire
Death, heartbreak and financial ruin through the medium of fire
Grief for the dead in Marysville as well as in Kinglake
When Nature she grows angry she leaves sorrow in her wake
Blackness and desolation where the fires had burnt their way
But the woods are looking greener in Marysville today.
