I’ve never thought of Australian Poetry as a Subset Genre

S0 I was on Poetry Foundation and I found this interesting article about Australian poetry and I found some interesting points and facts that I had never known. So Australian Aboriginal poetry is definitely a type of poetry and it is known for creating what is called “songpoetry.”

While I didn’t have time to read the many, many books the article recommended I found that the excerpts of poetry were extremely interesting because I had never thought of putting snipes in my poetry, or roos for that matter. And it made me think about how many cultures have certain animals or slang terms for animals that we don’t think about just because we aren’t from that culture. I just found it an interesting moment and you guys can read the article here!
