Quote Series : Sunburnt Country

I love a sun burnt country. A land of sweeping planes. 

Of ragged mountain rangers. 

Of droughts and flooding rains. 

I love her far horizons and her jewel-sea. 

Her beauty and her terror. 

The wide brown land for me. 

- Dorothea Mackellar 'My Country'

I have written this from memory. I learnt this poem at school in Australia; there are more stanza's and my 'personal version' could be slightly incorrect,  but this is how I like to resight it to myself.
