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)

I completely love this whole post! Respectful statue of a loving old"er" couple -- who are reading together (I can relate) -- lovely effects on the picture (I want to learn to work with Picnik) -- and beautiful Haiku, again I can relate to these words.
