Drink through straws like children
And have less common-sense than a...Read More

Roger de Coverley
Fonder of hoofing it
Than of romance
Found himself typified
King of the Reels and the
Lord of the Dance.

Wanted his subjects to
Quail at his power,
Crowing to Londoners
“Look, everybody, I’ve
Built me a tower!”
On the Other Side Categories: wallaby, happiness, joy, perspective, places, Form: Romanticism
Beyond the blue ...
sailing past the farthest tearful kiss blown
Hoping for clear skies ahead,
as my Aussie eyes see wallaby clouds
joyfully jumping by
From Perth to Sydney,
a dragging anchor of parting sadness
has dropped to the deep
Last thoughts of loneliness
is an indigo...Read More

Especially when it was to the shop
With his Mum on Saturday
To the Mall they hopped away
The supermarket was a special place
With lots to see in each aisle space
There were tomatoes, cabbage and beans in...Read More

dill Categories: wallaby, august, Form: I do not know?
Oesophagus is an appetite yet is it appropriate? Well in some cases it is merely only a handful of peanuts that shroud an already crowded melon. But what of force in a nation of static? Oh no. Apparently not. That...Read More
the peeling of snails in a queue Categories: wallaby, autumn, beach, Form: I do not know?

The Billabong Categories: wallaby, nature, Form: Rhyme
There’s an old river course with beginning and end,
now the river runs straight without this river bend,
where the water is still and the reeds do grow strong.
New life has taken over in a billabong.
The mat rush is spreading replacing the...Read More
Captured by the Creek Categories: wallaby, nature, water, drug, Form: Rhyme
Like a drug of dependence, this will keep me coming back
out along the Sardine Creek, walking on a wombat track.

But secrets of the bush keep arising every day.
I am captured by...Read More
BLUE MOUNTAINS GULLY Categories: wallaby, nature, Form: Verse
Yellow crops of sandstone,
Jagged mountain peak,
Red display of waratahs,
A meandering bush creek.
White display of flannel flowers,
Bottlebrush with orange cones,
Beautiful fronds of tree ferns,
Blue gums with crafted tones.
A frolicking roll of mountain mist,
An ancient windswept cave,
Green moss upon the velvet rocks,
Billabong Categories: wallaby, animal, bird, nature, Form: Free verse
They were gathered round the billabong
to try to work things out
but all that was being emitted was
a right Caxton of sounds
All were jabber, jabber
and some pushing going on
jostling each other for space
none wanting to be left out
At last the wallaby...Read More

Beneath the rainforest trees
As they hop in search of food
In the cool of the evening breeze
Adam loved Eve Categories: wallaby, fantasyeve, time, Form: Narrative
Once there was a man named Adam
He walked around very alone
Until a loneliness made him fathom
A name for all of these animals
Would truly make this place
Feel much more like home
He started with the green ones
For they had caught his eye
Hippety Hoppity Categories: wallaby, funny Form: Double Dactyl

Land he called home
Hadn’t the money so

Wound up in Nome
