Michael Leunig

Love Leunig's cartoons - he has to be Australia's best-known cartoonist, poet & artist. I will publish a few of my favourites over next few posts. Here's a great poem of his -
The Summer Palace

Make a little garden in your pocket
Plant your cuffs with radishes and rocket.
Let a passion fruit crawl up your thigh
Grow some oregano in your fly.

Make a steamy compost of your fears
Trickle irrigate your life with tears.
Let your troubled mind become a trellis
Turn your heart into a Summer Palace.
