    Default Heres what I think

    Yes thanks Red!!!!! I'm more worried about that Cat 5 Cyclone bearing down on the west Coast as we speak!!!!


    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!

    The stark white ringbarked forests
    All tragic 'neath the moon
    The sapphire-misted mountains
    The hot gold rush of noon --
    Green tangle of the brushes
    Where lithe lianas coil
    And orchid-laden tree-ferns
    Smother the crimson soil.

    Core of my heart, my country --
    Her pitiless blue sky,
    When sick at heart, around us
    We see the cattle die...
    And then the grey clouds gather
    And we can bless again,
    The drumming of an army,
    The steady, soaking rain.

    Core of my heart, my country,
    Young Land of Rainbow Gold --
    For flood and fire and famine
    She pays us back three-fold...
    Over the thirsty paddocks
    Watch, after many days
    A filmy veil of greenness
    That thickens as you gaze...

    An opal-hearted country,
    A wilful, lavish land --
    Ah, you who have not loved her
    You cannot understand...
    ...The world is fair and splendid
    But whensoe'er I die
    I know to what brown country
    My homing thoughts will fly!
    I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.
