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, 1985) wrote one of Australia’s best known poems, My Country, when she was just 19 while feeling homesick in England.
