Twenty three of them were written in China during that period, the... More > others after returning to Australia, and on reflection. The latter poems are fictional narratives, designed to entertain the reader.

The Chinese culture captured my heart, despite the poverty I could see around me. Their generosity overwhelmed me, their work ethic, their ability to enjoy life despite their poor conditions, and their artistic culture in art, dance and music was inspiring. Dedicated to my students and friends in Zhong guo.< Less
