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)

Water for the thirsty,
Water just for play,
Water for the forests,
Water for the hay—

Water’s what we’re seeking,
Both on sea and land,
Watching for the wet stuff,
Cameras in hand.
