Quote of the day for Wednesday 

  

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

Australian poet Dorothea Mackellar (born July 1, 1885) wrote one of Australia’s best known poems, My Country, when she was just 19 while feeling homesick in England.
