I love your manicured parks and graffiti-rich laneways.
Your coffee, your avocados, your tree-covered streets and your blue winter skies.
I love your cool nights and sweltering days. Your tennis, your race days; sometimes even your footy.
I love walking your streets with my dirty white dog. I love the intoxicating scent of eucalyptus after rain.
I love your gum nuts, your perfect ribbon-wrapped Christmas trees and your raucous native birds.
Your art, your culture, your beautiful architecture. I love the La Trobe reading room that has my heart.
I love your trams, your trains, your magnificent cycleways. Your welcoming public spaces and unexpected laneways.
I love meeting new friends who soon become old friends.
I love my children coming home with facts about Ned Kelly and the Stolen Generation and singing of their Home Among The Gum Trees.
I love our own home among the Wattle trees. Melbourne, I love you.
