AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
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 / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

perfect verse for an intriguing photograph.

Rust can be enigmatic. Always makes me wonder who left these things out for so long and why.

Jim said...

Hi Gemma, I like your old tractor almost as much as I do your haiku.
The owners do treasure it as they are keeping it covered to some extent.
