The Little Book of Rambling Rhymes: A Feast of Aussie Poems

Written in a simple fashion, these poems are really stories created through rhyme; some of which are intentionally absurd and reflect an Australian sense of humour. Some of the poetry has an exaggerated theme on the process of advanced ageing, about which the author has some experience. Others contain an element of sadness or truth which are left to the reader to ponder upon and reminisce about their own experiences in this unique land, which inspired those wonderful works of Henry Lawson, Andrew (Banjo) Patterson, Dorothea Mackellar and others.

About the Author


Fred Hewison is a retired Survey Draughtsman, who was employed by the Sydney Water Board for a period of thirty-eight years.

He was born in the Sydney suburb (now a city) of Hurstville and remained living there for fifty-five years, before he and his wife, Margaret, moved to the seaside town of Copacabana, near Gosford on the New South Wales, Central Coast.

In 1996 they moved with their beautiful dog to the present location of Banora Point; a suburb of Tweed Heads, near the Queensland border.

They have no family, but enjoy the lifestyle and climate of the area in which they live.

 Fred has a passion for writing; one of which is a published autobiography of his early years when growing up, titled “Crossed my Mind.”

He also is a competent landscape artist; a hobby in which he has indulged over many years.

Poetry is a relatively newfound pleasure.
