Canberra and I poem


(Vietnamese-luc-bat-style poem)

<<Story related to the poem>>

Comments about this post on ABC Open 500 words – New in town.

You’re loved for your renown,
Of leaves dyed red the town in Fall,
Of calm life, city – small,
Of attractions enthral people.

Yet age makes you hustle,
Houses, shops, clubs jostle for space.
My love dwindles apace,
Busy township betrays my dream.

P.S. The above poem was written in Vietnamese ‘luc bat’ poetry style. For more information about that poetry style read this article on Wikipedia.
