Biography

I write my poems straight from the heart, Where life's experience plays a big part. Been writing now for quite a long time, And enjoy the challenge of putting pen to rhyme .

Samples

The Accrington treat Its the small things that brighten up our day, Like the excitement of Friday and picking up our pay. Getting a seat on the train and hearing our favourite song, Receiving a smile from a friend then passing it along. Accrington was smilling on the 16th of May, When the Queen's big visit brightened up our day. Celibrating longevity and 60 years on the throne, A big day for Accrington to be set in stone. Upright dignified and widely admired, With a dedication to duty which has never retired. For 60 years She's been at the core, Truly British,whom we dearly adore. A model monarch happy and glorious, Hard working,indestructable,long to reign over us. There was joy and jubilation out there on the street, As we all enjoyed the Accrington treat. Please call again Accrington loved your visit,you brought magic to our air, With your Royal wave and smile for young and old to share. One or two tears were shed thinking of the past, Remembering 57 years ago when you were here last. Your visit in a shining moment brought us all together, A proud and memorable occasion ,even blessed by the weather. To see you in Accrington made us feel so warm, As around your loving presence,proud subjects we did swarm. So many happy faces in Accrington,I have never seen, Please call again and see us,your Majesty the Queen. Roy's Boys A drama unfolded on Friday night, Football at its finest full of fight. Roy Hodgson,a hands on coach working with his team, Calm and collected,ready to fullfill a dream. Andy Carroll,aerial combatant,awesome in the air, In the 23rd minute heads in a goal from a Gerrard cross,well done the pair! The second half saw Sweden grow in confidence,playing with purpose and pace, Two goals in ten minutes,put them ahead in the race. The mood of our fans turned from delight to despair, The journey back home was nearly there. But in the 61st minute Theo Walcott was suddenly brought in, The super sub scores and inspires England to win. Danny Welbeck conjures up a winner 15 minutes from full time, Flicked in a backheeler from a Walcott pass,it was sublime. These lion cubs showed their claws when it really mattered, Sweden's European dream was immediately shattered. A boost to their confidence is what the English team needs, A great win for Roy's boys against the Swedes. (Not an avid football fan,bursting into verse was a challenge after admitedly enjoying the excitement of the match)

Hugh, I so enjoyed the poem The Accrington Treat which was beautifully written in terms of loyalty to Our Sovereign and from a Lancastrian town, which during the Great War suffered enormous casualties in defence of the realm. God Bless Accrington and thank you. Keith

Hugh
Many thanks for the positive comment on Mum and Dad. It was written for a very special reason, but unusual for me, as I have never really written specifically for children before
If you have anything that you could contribute to the scheme shown on the front page of the site (Kingsland School) please do so

Hello Hugh .. your 'British Gas' is excellent, bunch of thieves, could you add BT's 'LATE charge' and their 'CASH handling' charge if you don't pay by D/Debit .. they're making millions while we say nothing ..

Hugh - many thanks for your comments about my
last poem. It is my experience that the source
of inspiration is often unexpected but somehow
all the stronger for that.
