One day a little boorabarl and mullagarng ran to their ngujarn and said
‘Ngujarn, ngujarn, Nimbing came to our land last night’.
Their ngujarn asked, ‘How can you tell if it was Nimbing?’
‘Well’, said the boories, ‘there are new eggs in the boojarngs nest, new leaves on the trees, new fresh grass, fresh sweet yams and the water is singing in the creek.’
‘Well my boories, I am pleased you have remembered Nimbing, for she is the most beautiful of all our Dreamtime.’
