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)

Happy New Year Child

Illustration by: Frances Brundage 1900
Monday's Child #26
Thursday Poets' Rally ~ Week #36

I have the face of a cherub
With eyes that glint with smiles
But I know how to reap
The fears that weep
And build castles in the sands of time

For I am the New Year child
Destined to be your guide
I see your dreams
And hear your sighs
And offer you joy on the next high tide

Monday's Child - (an illustration from a children's book is the writing prompt) - is hosted by bkmackenzie

Thursday Poets' Rally is hosted by Jingle

Thank you Jingle!
