My Country - by Dorothea Mackellar. The love of field and coppice, br Of green and shaded lanes. Core of my heart, my country! Land of the Rainbow Gold, For flood and fire and famine, She pays us back threefold - Over the thirsty paddocks, Watch, after many days, The filmy veil of greenness That thickens as we gaze. An opal-hearted country, A wilful, lavish land - All you who have not loved her, You will not understand - Though earth holds many splendours, Wherever I may die, I know to what brown country My homing thoughts will fly. by Dorothea Mackellar.

My Country is an iconic nationalistic poem about Australia written by Dorothea Mackellar in 1908. On September 1908 a poem, ‘Core of My Heart’, appeared in the London Spectator. Dorothea Mackellar was born in Sydney in 1885. It also reappeared several times in Australia before being renamed as ‘My Country’ in her first book, ‘The Closed Door and Other Verses’. During World War I ‘My Country’ became one of the best-known Australian poems which successfully appealed to the sense of loyalty nurtured by the war and post-war patriotism.
