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)

Clout


Another view of my shadowy archer

Poetry Pantry #53

A man who was proud of his clout
And loved to holler and shout
Drew a bow one too many
And lost his last penny
So now touts the grace of a lout.
