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)

Boats moored quietly in early morning light at Schnapper Point, Mornington Peninsula

Falls and trails of light
A sign of gentle guidance
Like an outstretched hand
