Say it with a bush poem…
When you say bush poetry, people immediately think of Banjo Paterson’s “The Man From Snowy River” or Dorothea MacKellar’s “My Country”. These poems fill us with a vast range of emotions as they take you on a journey. Well imagine you are standing in front of friends and family having just given your daughter away, and reciting your feelings, affirmations, encouragements and congratulations, as every eye fills with tears. This is a memory your family, especially your daughter, will cherish for a lifetime.
“Do you remember the poem dad recited at our wedding? Oh my God I still tear up. How amazing was that!”
No matter the occasion, I can take your words and turn them into a memory that will never be forgotten.
Prices start at $20 for an eight line stanza.
You will receive a gift box with a framed copy, printed on parchment paper.
You will also receive a CD with every draft plus the final edit and the print file. There is also an audio copy so you can hear how your PBV sounds.
There are further options available and some conditions apply.
I have a special offer detailed below.
Are you a returned or serving veteran in the Australian Defence Force?

Here’s my first completed order for a PBV. It’s for a wedding that happened a while back. Enjoy…Journey out to Rouse When someone from the sticks Finally finds “the one” Usually of these categories They’ll fall into one They’ve either moved to the big smoke And stumbled across them there Or their high school sweetheart Is the one with life they share But Danny boy and Cassie Took a rat run from the first For he was just in visiting They met over a thirst She was there to match make Two friends from city life He was there for family Not knowing he’d meet his wife Melbas on the Gold Coast Boxing Day 2000 nine The time and place in history To them always divine Once her friends were match made They left her there alone Then she met Melissa While shots were being thrown Then Danny boy walked over Cas thought Melissa’s man But only in Tasmania Would something like that stand Melissa set the record straight Inside Cas jumped with glee She thought this man a hunk Shortly after they both fleed The next two years built memories To their grave they’ll take And built the love of fairytales Let’s pray nothing can break The fact they’d drive 600 kay Just to see each other That picture just speaks mountains of Their love for one another The fact she’d knock off work And make that journey west For breakfast out at Cubbie She gave her man her best But this city girl soon learned Country life is worlds apart A world where men scratch shamelessly And aren’t afraid to fart A world where 9 to 5 Are just two times on a clock Early up and late to bed It must have been a shock But through it all she stuck it out And stood beside her man Pampering and loving him Daniel’s biggest fan But on this loving journey There’s been a test or two Like breaking down at Dalby This damsel needing a rescue Then there was the tractor When she took it for a bath Wiped out the sign and guideposts On a narrow Cubbie path But at least the car and tractor Both of them survived The ride on not so lucky It couldn’t be revived But even after all of that He doesn’t hold a grudge I reckon she apologised With home cooked chocolate fudge And while I’m talking cooking I feel the need to say I hope there is a fitness plan Currently under way A woman who can cook Before you know it your stomach’s grown To the point your butt and gut Have postcodes all their own Two thousand and eleven When Queensland was in flood Everywhere you went Even roads were knee deep mud Now poor old Cas was stranded Where it’s normally stinkin’ hot Two months out at Dirran She was devastated, NOT! She spent her time as chauffer Running Daniel here and there While he was running ragged Every need became her care She’d wash and clean and cook And I’ve no doubt a massage or two And probably did some other things That’s no concern to you! That time together must have left A taste like cotton candy ‘Cause later on that year Cas moved out to Dirranbandi This city girl moved way out west Things were getting serious Waking up with her each day Left Danny boy delirious Now we get to this year And a family trip away Dan and Cas went early For he’d planned a special day She’d hinted for a while ‘Bout something missing from her hand But this poor lass fell crook So he postponed what he had planned He tried again at Cubbie Plaited cotton round a ring On a picnic popped the question Expecting just one thing Jokingly she told him “No” No doubt he nearly died Then jumping ‘round and squealing No doubt “HELL YES” she cried That leads us to this special day When two hearts join as one Embarking on a journey Full of drama, Love and fun This midwife from the city Who’s as tender as a dove This typical country bumpkin With hands that look like gloves This girly girl who risked it all To find her one true love A movie script that most girls Could only ever dream of This typical Aussie bloke Footy, BBQ and beer In the right place at the right time To find a love so dear So that is how this city girl Wound up in country life The lovey dovey story of how This farmer found a wife Congrats Daniel and Cassie That story’s Mickey Mouse The story of a city girl’s Journey out to Rouse.
