Australian Sunsets

Sunsets/Sunrise over Australia

Glass House Mountains

The Dawn Dorothy Mckellar

At the dawning of the day,
On the road to Gunnedah,
When the sky is pink and grey
As the wings of a wild galah,
And the last night-shadow ebbs

Brooms Head at Dusk

My Country Dorothy Mckellar

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged 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!

Sunrise 1770

Looks like morning in your eyes

Sunset at Brooms Head

Sunrise on the Hills Henry Longfellow
I stood upon the hills, when heaven's wide arch
Was glorious with the sun's returning march,
And woods were brightened, and soft gales
Went forth to kiss the sun-clad vales.
 Softly the evening came.
The sun from the western horizon
Like a magician extended his golden 
want o'er the landscape; 
Trinkling vapors arose;
and sky and water and forest
Seemed all on fire at the touch, 
and melted and mingled together
