Comments

Dorothea MacKellar's My Country is one of Australia's most widely recited and beloved poems. Reflective of the author's great love of the Australian landscape, the poem has become one of the most recognised and celebrated pieces of Australian poetry ever written.

2nd 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!
