These poems cover a variety of subjects, and a lot of them tell stories – sometimes humorous, sometimes sad. Many readers will recognize a few of them, such as Waltzing Matilda. Plus, dozens more touch on subjects from animals to sports. There’s something for everyone, whether you are a fan of poetry or not, and regardless of your nationality.
