I love a sunburnt country....

This is a line from a very famous Australian poem 'My Country' by Dorothea Mackeller - the most known stanza of this poem is as follows:

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!

This is Australia to a T. It is an amazingly beautiful country and as well as being bloody scary.

It has been rough for many of my countrymen and women in these past weeks. There have been massive floods in Queensland as well as my home state of Victoria - much damage has been done to properties and unfortunately there has been lives lost.

In the South, we have been sweltering in the heat and in the far North as I write this, a category 5 cyclone is just about to hit many town and cities - 89,000 homes are already without power and the worst of it is yet to come. Emergency services are grounded - these people are on their own.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all in FNQ who are battling Yasi - I hope you and your families are all able to stay safe.


  1. Oh JourneyMum:

    Wasn't it a horrendous night? And us so far from the storm front, a cyclone the X times the size of Katrina....I felt guilty hitting my pillow just as the swirling mass hit land. It has been a rough month, and here in our home state we have flood waters still to drop at one end and bushfires at the other! There will be so much rebuilding, a loss of essential services, and a shortage of fruit and vegetables for a long time to come. Really makes the struggles of infertility look insignificant.
