The Shire

We spent Christmas in the Shire
(Not the one with Hobbits and Fire)
I speak of the one in central Victoria

During the Gold Rush, back in the day
This area became well known to those far away

Many found Gold and became really rich!
Nowadays it’s a quaint getaway in which

We have a house with an acre to grow
Fruit, veggies and other things we can sow 

It really is a beautiful place
Nature and architecture enrich this space

The drive was long but whimsically scenic
We zipped past fields, trees, and live stock in paddocks

It was a good way to end this trip back down under
I’m refreshed and happy because home is utopia.
