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)

Urban lines and shapes
Like misty blue building blocks
Beauty from afar

PRAISING WATER

Water here and water there,
Water, water everywhere!
Water to restore the soul,
Water in a cup or bowl;
Water gushing in the sink,
Water clear or dark as ink;
Water in the stream and bog,
Water for the newt and frog;
Water to refresh the wheat,
Water washing dusty feet;
Water chasers everywhere
With loud praises do declare
That there is no finer thing—
Water is both queen and king!
