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)

Seas and skies churning
Melody of pending storm
Like an 1812

NOTE: Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture features booming cannons at the close.
The sound always reminds me of thunder in storms.
I tried to embed an example but it simply wouldn't post!
Now it's appearing? Sorry!

There was a war in 1812,those must be their cannons. The American 2nd war of independence apparently. Great take Gemma!
