From the authors of Share Your Story, a collection of bedtime ballads and tall tales inspired by the Australian Bush written for the young and the young at heart. The bush ballad, bush song or bush poem is a style of poetry and folk music that depicts the life, character and scenery of the Australian bush. This modern interpretation from contempory authors celebrates what it means to them. All profits from the sale of the anthology are donated to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service to help protect our bush and support those who risk their lives to save it.

Oh no! Oh no! How does it go?

That poem I forgot.

It went, 'something something something...'

I've forgot the flamin' lot.

Oh, how's it go? It's an epic verse

But I forgot to bring it.

I should have set it all to music,

I'd recall it if I sing it.

But some of it I must admit

I've deliberately erased.

It's irrational, illogical

And absolutely crazed!
