Trentham Falls, In Victoria, Australia, the Coliban River cutting through the basalt high plain: I wrote this for the falls themselves and their pools. Must be late summer, there's only a tinkle of water and not a roar.
After all this burbling in soft forest and tinkling over falls, the happy little Coliban River first gets stuck in a reservoir, then what's left joins the Campaspe River which quickly turns into a ghost. A sad end for such a lovely stream It was ever thus: "Where thin and slow, Campaspe coils / Athwart the burnt Australian plain" (Archibald Strong, "The Ballade of London Town") in the mid-19th Century.)
I wasn't sure about this song but it put me to sleep while editing and i fell off the bench...so we'll mark it "relaxation". I had to cheat and edit the appallingly irregularly played-in triplets which I hate. Hate hate.
