Verse

Below are some examples of verse poetry I have written. The discipline, economies and structure of verse appeal to me. I am a fan of A.B. ‘Banjo’ Paterson and quite a lot of my work borrows from his verse structures. I am open for commissioned work, to write substantial verses commemorating someone’s life or career.

  1. At Least Some Get it Right – This is for all those who are *over* the Silly Season. It is based on a famous nineteenth century poem.
  2. CLANCY.COM.AU
    This is my ‘updated’ version of Banjo’s classic…
  3. Field of Green  – Lord Tennyson wrote a few triplets. I like the economy of the form. This is about a favourite pastime.
