“My Country”

Our terrestrial ecology professor, John Hall, began today’s lecture with this quote:

I love a sunburnt country
a land of sweeping pains
of rugged 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”

-”My Country” Dorothea Mackellar, 1908
