Australias best loved poets.
When we think of our best loved poets, the big four might first come to mind.
Patterson and Lawson, Gordon and Kendall. They have stood the test of time.
I first learned their verses while I was still at school
Though that was many years ago, their writings , for, me still appeal.
Then I thought about other poets whose names are not so well known
how their verses may be remembered for sentimental reasons alone.
We are proud of our Australian poets, and they are deserving of our praise
their poems often are a reflection of our Australian habits and ways.
We appreciate the help we get here, and there is one way we could show it,
Let's nominate P.I.P. for Australias Best Loved Poets.
