The rhymes of a local poet with 80 years of writing under her belt have been immortalised in a book.
Winifred Campbell, 93, has been writing poetry since she was in high school.
Even as a child she remembers singing little songs of her own making as they came into her head, and she has continued to write until as recently as last year.
Mrs Campbell's sister-in-law Leola Hull decided to compile some of her poetry into a book to share the poet's stories with the community.
Mrs Hull said Mrs Campbell kept her poems in notebooks and exercise books, and she decided to go through them and put them in printed form so they could be read for years to come.
The book is the second of its kind, with Mrs Campbell releasing another poetry book in 2001.
'Scrabble on Mondays,' named after one of Mrs Campbell's favourite pastimes, was published on August 3 this year.
It is a collection of Mrs Campbell's poems from 1939 to 2019 including social commentary and whimsical rhymes ranging from humourous stories to reflections on Mrs Campbell's life.
Some tell stories of life in Wagga, while others are reflections on time in the outback from Mrs Campbell's days of living by the dingo fence near Tibooburra with her husband.
The book includes poems that turn everyday moments into witty anecdotes, or play with different poetry styles.
Mrs Campbell said she hoped the book would bring joy to those who read it.
"I would just like them to enjoy it," she said.
"I enjoy hearing them read, I enjoy writing them.
"That's what poems are for, something people like to listen to."
