Highett and Parramatta

Growing up in the 60’s and 70’s

Holidays meant

Going to the coast

Simple accommodation

Days spent at the beach.

‘Going O.S.’

was expensive

exotic

seemingly out of reach.

 

So when the girl from Highett

And the boy from Parramatta

Travelled to Europe

And celebrated

Their anniversary

With a view of Le Petit Palais

In Paris

And drank in

The wonder of the Rosenlaui Glacier

And poked about

Einstein’s home in Bern

And strolled along Unter den Linden

As they explored Berlin’s rich heritage

And gazed into history

At Stonehenge

And gloried in Gaudi’s genius

Of the Sagrada Familia

And ate seafood paella and drank sangria

Overlooking the Mediterranean

There was a delightful air

Of unreality

to it all

 

The girl from Highett

And the boy from Parramatta

Had indeed

Come a long way
