    Thom This is such a great ode to your home. The imagery and creativity allows the reader to see every place you are writing about. Nice job

    Hobart, in Tasmania (I love geography and cartography). Would love to visit your country one day; came close when I lived in New Zealand for awhile. What I'd give for a meat pie, Lift soda and Wattie's tomato sauce (and lest I forget the fish 'n chips!). I miss Wattie's so much; I've looked into importing it, but LORD it is ever expensive! Great poem, Tom; you make me yearn for the Kiwis! :)

    This certainly pulled at my heart strings, Thomas (you can take the girl out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the girl)! A great piece, and a great show of love for country - thank you :)

    Amazing poem! I have never been to Australia, but I am sure it is breathtaking. I can really relate to the last verse, it sounds like where I live. I am from Wisconsin, in the United States...Thank you for all of the kind comments on my work. They really mean so much to me! :)

    I could feel the love of country here....I have never been to Australia, but would love to see it someday. I really enjoyed the interesting rhymes here.
