Ocie the Ocelot liked words a lot!
As a tot, words like dot and trot hit the spot
Then, getting older, the folder on her shoulder grew bolder
What was once handy stopped ringing so dandy
Craving vocabulary candy to bandy
She sought what she...Read More

A Celebration in Spring
The winter and the spring are intermingling;
some days warmth and sun; some cold and rain,
and the flora that is needing reconditioning
swell their buds, and start greening once again,
and on the clothesline wire,
or dead branch on a briar,
soon become the occupier...Read More

By The Side of the Road
I lie dead and broken and crushed by the road
and the crows make a meal of my eyes
I no longer wander the trails in the bush
there's no one who mourns me or cries

And all who pass by are repulsed by...Read More

I am the bushland dawning
in the stillness of the morning
I am the sunlit plains
and the mighty river's flow

I'm the drought and I'm the flood
I'm the earth and I'm the blood
I'm the breezes ever blowing
where the wild pandanas grow

I'm the stockman...Read More

No Necking Emu
“Hi Sexy”, I said to 
The giant beaked black emu;
The next thing I recall,
Big yellow beak heading
At me, full speed ahead
And I quickly stepped back.

Stalled claws gripped the ground;
Halting bird staring;
Obsidian eyes
Screamed in confusion;
Rejected big bird emu;

Approached slowly.
I held out...Read More

Who says there wasn't an emu in the stable
I stand proud and majestic
and tall as can be
even taller than Joseph
at a whole three foot three

I am honoured to be here
and give all my heart
though I may not have lines
it is still a big part

I smile wide and honest

Australia in the sun
Lonely trees on lonely roadsides
In dusty paddocks scarce water to abide
A hot dry northerly blows from the red centre
Gives no relief from the summer’s measure

Kangaroos lie in the gum tree’s shade
Idling the long hours in a lazy escapade
An emu flock...Read More

The eggs of chickens are very small,
But their use is quite versatile 
Compared to the eggs of emus...
Let's think about that for a while.

Can be boiled, scrambled or fried, 
Tasty omelettes, or even poached.

Born to different fathers they were never that close
But their mother insisted they keep in touch
They never had much in common apart from the love for their Mum
One was drawn by the magnetism of corporate trappings
The other mesmerised by wailing...Read More

Sunrise Breaks on a Morning Camp
It’s been a long day beneath hot sun,
with sunset looming and daylight done,
came across water with a stand of trees,
deep in shadow with a zephyr breeze;
a perfect place to camp for the night, 
joined by galahs in the fading light,

Witchy Poo From Dunedoo
I'm Witchy Poo from Dunedoo,
I'm a flaming outback witch,
You won't see me rounding cattle up
Or digging in a ditch.

I like to cast spells,
Just like those city witches do,
I've cast so many spells outback,
Successful ones too.

Did you know that emus
