AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
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 (1885-1968)

Hey Harriet said...

That's a lovely indoor shadow. At first glance it looked like a little black mouse peeking up from the bottom corner! I really need to wear my glasses but it's kind of fun not seeing so clearly :)

I know these shadows,
familiar as my own face,
peering back at me.
