Treasure Island

A Poet? No Way.!


Who would want to be a Poet?
They might think that you're insane,
For you go around reciting,
Twirling like a Weathervane.

    Here's my thoughts on the topic:

    In Defence of Verse
    - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Why not pay heed?
    Why not indeed!
    To the topic of rhythm and rhyme;
    For it pleases the ear,
    And pleases the mind,
    And takes up little time. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
