Lake Mistake



The beauty of Lake Macquarie is easy to discern.
Whenever I have visited I've been eager to return.
It once was known as Reid's Mistake  because an officer of the fleet
Thought he'd found a river! I think that's rather sweet.
But a case of mistaken identity hasn't ruined its reputation,
And it has been, for many years, a favourite destination.

When the sun blazes out of the cloudless blue
It almost passes us by,
But a shadowy-shine
Is a grand design;
It's an art-work in the sky.
