Author: Garth Nix

Garth Nix is blogging at InsideADog as the current writer-in-residence. He has written a farewall to Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin.

But last night I wrote a small farewell to Steve Irwin in my head and this morning I typed it up, and here it is. The form is a bastardized version of alliterative verse inspired by Norse poetry (and later practitioners). It probably doesn’t scan or the syllables add up, because I am a very lazy poet. But I think it still works and anyway, it needed to get out of my brain and go somewhere.Steve Irwin deserves a better Viking poem, but this is the best I can do.
