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)

Italian perfume
Filtering depression years
Watcher of world wars

Yesterdays may fade
Classic elegance lives on
Legendary scents

Italian fragrance
Parma is beyond my world
But I breathe echoes
