Bush Poetry

by Janine Haig
Bush verse is becoming more and more popular - it is good fun and very Australian.   Most books of bush verse seem to be written by men.  Here is a woman's view of the bush and its people.

Janine is an award winning poet and has two books of Bush Poetry: "I Hope Yer Sheep Get Flyblown" and "Always Wear Clean Knickers".    

A third book called "Bush Spirit" with poems by Janine and Jennifer (Janine's daughter) Haig is as enjoyable as the other two.  The Mother and Daughter combination is well worth reading.

 There  are links to 2 "pomes" from each book for your enjoyment. Just click on the links, and press the back button to return here, or click on the bush poetry link on the left to return.
