A full moon to guide us
The skipper preparing the boat
The merry revelers on board
Keeping watch for other vessels
Under the Bolte bridge
The city skyline full of light
Then at midnight the fireworks
Now it’s 2018!!!!!
As the rest of Australia Swelters
In Melbourne has a top to day of 19c
As the Lunar New Year Celebrations draw to the end
There was Chinese dancing at Victoria Market
With traditional music and movement
Then in a change of pace the music for the chicken dance came from the speaker.
Not very Chinese I think
As kids got up to dance to a familiar tune.
But, of course, this is the Year of the Rooster
So why not use a European Drinking song which has chicken in the title!
Only in Multicultural Melbourne
Where cultures and traditions blend happily.
