Australia a land of droughts and flooding rains

Dorothea Mackellar wrote a poem about Australia, with the stanza …

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!

After the last weeks having Bushfires, the East Coast is now in flood. And travelling has been wrecking havoc, as this car shows.

  1. I love to see your country,a place to be free.A place like America was before no rights and not free,A land I could walk end to end,and see two seas.I love to die in your country,then I will be free.
