Somewhere at Glenthorne-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta today…

Squelch go our shoes when we step in the mud, pitter-patter-pitter-patter, vroom went the bus as we watch it drive into the distance.
The grass gets angry about being squashed and protested by making us itchy.
The lizard lays in the sun, shedding its skin on a rock in the lazy afternoon.
We feel happy that we went there.
We wonder what used to live there.

Kids jump off the bus, giggling and making footprints up the hill. Huff, phew!
The shiny, sticky mud waits cheekily for the kids to run over the mud and slip.
Lizards lay under lumpy logs looking for fat, slimy snails for lunch.
We feel excited and happy that we finished the day.
We wonder if the mud is that cheeky.

Kids slide slippery steps, wobbly-bobbly seats. Slip-slide on mud, cackling kids all around.
The stinging nettles leap out to sting me, then my hat saves me.
Four picky and plump pigeons peck at their precious kangaroo grass seeds.
I feel wet water droplets race down my hand as I walk down the path.
I wonder if the animals are watching us.

Beep-beep! Children laugh as they get out of the bus. Squish-squash, trembling through the water and mud, chitter-chatter as they go up the hill.
The playground is so excited to be used, but it is not ready just yet.
A pair of possums perched in their hole, picking and punching leaves.
We feel happy because we are excited to see our plants that we planted last time.
We wonder I wonder how the 3 story house got on fire and what it looked like.

The kids are walking and walking, splashing to the park. Someone skids on the mud, huff and puff up the hill.
The trees whisper to each other “what are these kids doing here?”
The wood duck dives into the dark deep water to catch some macroinvertebrates.
We feel curious about what the megafauna did here.
We wonder why the Megafauna chose Glenthorne.

Vroom goes the bus, thump-thump go the feet of the kids, splash go the
feet on the rainy ground.
The silly mud stickily waits for us to get stuck.
At Glenthorne the graceful geckos glide across the grassy ground.
We feel itchy and cold.
We wonder what there was before we stepped foot on Glenthorne.
