My country

Uluru Australia summer holiday

Miss D was humming in her bathroom this morning. It is a lovely tune and we like it. Turns out she used one of her choir song’s tune and sang it with a different poem. How nice!

This is her poem (well, not HER poem, but the poem she was humming). We would love to share with you.

My Country

I love a sun burnt 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!

Extract from Dorothea McKellar, ‘My Country’
