A collection of poems with a rural flavor from my years growing up on a dairy farm at Tatuanui, about halfway between Morrinsville and Te Aroha in the Waikato. In my opinion, those of us who grew up in the fifties and sixties in those rural areas struck the jackpot. I have been asked on numerous occasions, what we did to amuse ourselves? It must have been so dull and boring. Well, let me tell you it was neither; we had a ball, and I feel privileged to have grown up in that community.
