Hi Ann. Thx for your interesting take on my creation 'hunt'. Maybe your comments show that these things should not be explained in detail and that the picture should be painted by the reader. Win

I think poems that 'happen' Harry can be so good as is this write..For me the finding of the loose sheet and the slight shock of the title is great..Liked the meander through your memories that lead to this..yes I too think the attic is your keep sake of days past..but also that you have more to give..

Neat write Harry... :)

Graham - thanks for your kind comments on 'For the common good' - much appreciated. Whilst it paints a somewhat gloomy picture on the one hand, it nevertheless attempts to capture some of the atrocities in recent years. Like the reference you added re. Martin Luther King and Mandela - very apt! I do have a sense of humour as you might see from my other. By the way, Billericay poem is great! Tony

Nice Thoughts in this Poem...
Nice natural rhythm...
Builds a nice natural pasture picture...only one slight moan...lol - 'over use of the words grasslands and swaying' I feel sure the poem would benefit if other words used?

As long as you are happy with it...that's the main thing - well written though!

Hi Isobel,

Thanks for your comments on Maternal Beacon I hope it has given you some positve vibes.

I've had this in my locker for some 20 years but have only just managed to let it flow/release, if you know what I mean. But I have found it to be a good theraputic walking stick!

I can relate to and like your 'A prosy poem'.
It hits the nail on the head for me, if only people in the loop would think the same!

Mike

It's people - sorry, scum - like these who raise the bloodlust in otherwise decent folk. We shouldn't be asking for it back: we should be stripping them of their assets and making them swim to their 'tax haven' of choice weighted down with sovereigns. [Then again, if they die at sea we can't dance on their graves.]

A good poem on the trenches, Mike. I have a fascination with the Great War which compels me too to write poems about 1914-18. Just by the by, for my money the 20th century was the shortest [and, after the 14th., the worst] on record, only starting in 1914 [after the Victorian/Edwardian Great Binge] and ending in 1991, when the wars in the Balkans kicked off and the rest of the world decided 'enough is enough; we're just going to sit it out now and wait for the future i.e. the millennium to roll up, with its silver jump suits, pills for food and a personal jetpack for everyone.'

You seem to have struck a chord here Laura; this reminds me of the nightmare of maths lessons wayyyy back when; and then [glutton for punishment] when I tried to do a maths GCSE in the 80s. What the hell was I thinking? You can't write a poem with numbers! [Can you?]

Thanks for your comments on The Cruet Set, John. I was interested in your family story about the Doncaster mining job. My wife's Scottish great-grandfather was blacklisted for seven years after the General Strike. It caused a lot of hardship in his family, and even a political divide. Then in his seventies, or maybe even eighties, he became a Communist councillor in his home pit village. There must be poems about both those relatives to be written, some day. Greg

Amen to that! Words are what men live by...
signposts pointing the way down the years.
I own small old volumes of poetry written
many years ago and the words and their authors
speak across time to me...the message loud and
clear.
"As long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee." (Shakespeare - who knew his stuff!)

I too have a very limited recollection of my grandad. One story though still sits in the family memory bank that he walked from Nottigham to Doncaster to find work in the pits because he was blacked in Nottingham.
