I am a Wirral based writer and am a co-founder of the Mortonarms Live in, well, Moreton on the Wirral. I have a strong connection to Birkenhead, spreading out to The Wirral and Merseyside in general. I am fairly new to Poetry having only picked up a pen four years ago, obviously I have picked up pens prior to this, and even since, but in a poetical sense, well, you get the gist. I have had some of my scribbles placed in a couple of booklets, but do not consider myself a 'published' poet. Look, I find it difficult to write about myself so thats all you are getting.


DID Did his father expect to see the boy he'd sat upon his knee full of compasion with loving stare safe within this strong mans care Did his mother expect to hear her babies cry, so loud and clear calling for this woman fair to soothe his pain and stroke his hair Did his parents expect their boy full of life and boundless joy to run to them with arms held high to lift him soaring to the sky Did he know of parents fears fathers worry, mothers tears waiting for the news to say their child was coming home today Did they know he'd make a stand for love of them, in far off land and pray, one day, his task would cease to change our world from war to peace Did life conspire to cause such woe when fortunes changed to make it so this lasting sorrow, where once was joy in silked draped coffin, their little boy.

Hi Ian, thank you for your kind words on "not gone and not forgotten"
"DID" is indeed a wonderful poem and "gibberish" brought a smile to my face as it is a subject dear to my heart.
