The Poet's Garret

If you are interested in verse, here is an excellent resource to bookmark:

Thanks to Terry Clitheroe for this site - "proudly made in Australia" as it says on the top of the page. You'll find information on many forms, such as odes, ballads, sonnets, even bardic verse such as you'd found in Welsh and Irish poetry.

I've written many a poem inspired by this site. I'll share, but only if you ask.
