I love a sunburnt country,

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains
Of ragged 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!extract from ‘Core of my heart’ by Dorothea Mackellar. (via statelibrarynsw)
