Words to walk with:
From My Country by Dorothea Mackellar . This poem is one of the most widely known in Australia.
“I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of rugged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror –
The wide brown land for me!”
