I Love This Land Australia Poem by Francis Duggan

I Love This Land Australia

Rating: 4.6


I love this Land Australia of gum and wattle tree
This vast and sunlit Continent is home from home for me
And though I come from a distant Land when I have had my day
Than underneath Australian soil where better place to lay.

I love this Land Australia home of the kangaroo
Of echidna and wombat, platypus and cockatoo
Of lorikeet and rosella, koala, possum and emu
And other unusual birds and animals as I've mentioned just a few.

I like Australian people if poor man make good they say
The man he is a battler, good on him anyway,
In Land of wedge tailed eagle there's rooom to spread one's wings
And in the lucky country the battler is a king.

I love this Land Australia it's home from home for me,
Home of the kookaburra and gum and wattle tree
And bell bird and bell magpie who through the Winter sing
A Winter oft times milder than Ireland in the Spring.

I love this Land Australia of sunshine and bird song
And with each passing day my love for this great Country grow more strong
And though I come from a distant Land when I have had my day
Than underneath Australian soil where better place to lay.

you're quite obviously not australian, don't know anything about our wildlife, nature or culture. when you are unknowledgeable about something, it's best not to comment & allow the whole world to know about your shortcomings.

I LOVE this poem. It's soooo good, and what makes it even better is that it is about Australia and Australia is the greatest country in my opinion. I'm proud to call Australia my home and will be for the rest of my life too.

I am having serious doubts about the value of our bogans however. Having said this, every country has a subculture of urban trash and Australia is not the only country with a cultural problem.
