Aussie Stuff.

My  Australia.


Australia My Land,

one nation and free,

an island of beauty encircled by sea.


Great mountain ranges, deserts of gold,

mysterious secrets yet to be told.

Plains so extensive, rivers and gorges,

beauty and splendour a canvas it forges.

Snowcapped escarpments waterfall spun,

crystals of brilliance vibrate in the sun.

Birds in a spectrum of colour and light,

myriads of rainbows banking in flight.


My land, Australia,

much more to behold, an artistic canvas of

green, silver and gold.

found a lake with tall timber at its edge.

Sighing She-oaks spindled branches waving gently in the…

Ayres Rock.


Nestling in a desert wasteland

is this monolith of fame,

perhaps a creature quietly sleeping,

omniscient, oh! so tame.

Knowing all but seeing nothing

as many others pass it by

while it dwells in concentration…

Naracoorte Nonsense ?


Two tiny steam engines following along

both of them singing their sweet little song,

sucking up dust, spreading to air,

the farmer must feel downhearted despair.

But no !

He is just - clover seed harvesting.

Collecting seeds, expelling some dust,…

Hi Jim, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site.

This is a social site built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).

You can:

This being a social site the more we all do here the more interesting it becomes for everyone. 


There's no membership fee, and no editor deciding what gets published (there is though just a bit of post facto moderation to keep it clean and on-topic).


So others here know a bit more about your interest in poetry it'd be great if you introduced yourself with a few words in a post or the text box on your profile page.

I hope you enjoy your time on the site and find it useful, and please let us know what you think.


Best wishes,
