While Page’s poems are more formal than free verse, rhymed and very often in iambic tetrameters and trimeters, they also owe something to the larrikin tradition of Henry Lawson, many with rural settings that narrate yarns. The poet Robert Gray notes, "Geoff Page has become one of the very finest celebrators of our culture, in its broadest sense; of particulars of our history, and uniqueness. His work is full of great affection and is written without pretension or program."
Page’s major themes tend to be religion (he declares himself an agnostic), war and music. His poems about jazz and classical music might be his most joyous work, a celebration of musicians and composers. Place also figures largely in his work, in particular the Clarence River area, with its characters and landscape. Death is a frequent visitor to his work, and he often takes up issues of injustice, writing on events such as the clash between Aboriginal and British culture during the white settlement of Australia.
Page's reading shows fine use of dynamics, with some poems delivered in a relaxed nearly laconic style, while in others poems, such as 'The Visit' he moves along with a story teller’s pace and timing. His reading sets off the fine metre of the works, and the playfulness of their construction. These poems were recorded and produced in Sydney by Carol Jenkins, for Page’s audio CD Coffee with Mile published by River Road Press.
