Australian Rhyming Verse Orators


Sunday 4 October, I joined the ARVOS under a Eucalypt tree in Kew (Melbourne suburb if you are reading this in another part of the world). The ARVOS proudly follow in the steps of some of Australia's master poets and reciters, Banjo Patterson, Will Ogilvie and Henry Lawson. A white board was propped up against a tree and all those in attendance were listed and a round of recitations followed. These included some self penned works. Featured ARVO was Stephen Whiteside (pictured). Poet and author of several books, Stephen explored the subject of different rhyming techniques. The ARVOS meet on the first Sunday of the month 2.00 pm, Kew Scout Hall at the Jack O'Toole Reserve, Willsmere St Kew (family friendly, no membership fees). I can recommend you join the ARVOS for a cuppa and a rhyme or two.
