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)

So far...


So far far away
Like a shadowy dreamland
Spring is not our time

(Australia is drifting through the sleep of Autumn right now)

True enough; I must remember that the world does not revolve around my house! Spring will come to you again, and in the mean time, you can enjoy wearing cosy sweaters again! Terrific haiku :)
