Latest published poem

Here’s my latest published poem for children. It’s out now in the latest issue of Australia’s state publication: The School Magazine (Orbit, May 2013).

The poem also features in my book, Swinging through the Sky (2007).


Outside / Inside

The clouds are crying,
crying down my window pane.

Today’s given up, cancelled its afternoon,
packed up, gone to bed,
surrendered to the doom and gloom.

The birds have all stopped flying,
my den tree’s hanging its head – 

and the deeper the gloom,
the more rain down the pane,
the cosier it grows in my room!
