Old Jim The Bush Poet

Among the lovers of bush poetry one worthy of note
Many love him for his poems old Jim the bush poet
At least five decades beyond his life's prime
Still he can spin a good yarn in rhyme
The fruits of his talents Jim is always willing to share
In an age when good poets like he is are becoming rare
Stories of bush nature and bush people in his poems he does tell
He is one who writes often as well as one who writes well
An octogenarian great grandfather he lives with Kate his aged wife
For sixty years she has been his soulmate and the love of his life
She will tell you that there is no greater poet than her Jim
She does not hide the fact that she feels quite proud of him
They love him for his poems the fans of old Jim the bush poet
And they claim he is one worthy of far greater literary note.
