Australian Poems that would Humour a Horse
Philip R Rush, one of Australia’s top-selling poets, in this, his thirteenth book of poetry, has once again drawn on his vast experience and dry wit to bring the everyday world about us to life.
Having spent much of his last fifty years in various rural communities, Rush has a special affinity with the bush, and this becomes very obvious as one reads his poetry. He is a master at bringing a new perspective to an enormous range of subjects, from washing clothes to global warming, drought to ironmongery, mountain climbing to Aussie songs, and much more. This is all done with a peerless use of word, rhythm and rhyme, and more than a touch of humour!
With over 120,000 copies of his books in print, Rush has become a favourite of many readers, both in Australia and overseas. As you read his verses, you will readily sense the enjoyment he has in writing, and will find it easy to journey through life’s experiences with him!
Syd Woon, the illustrator of nine of Rush’s books, has again excelled in depicting to perfection the subject matter, humour and emotion of each of the poems he has pictured with his exquisite drawings.
Woon’s experience of life is readily seen in. the detail and veracity of his art. His illustrations brinq a wonderful added dimension to fourteen of Rush’s poems in this book.
