A lifetime educator in the RAF as well as in schools and mostly in mathematics and I/T, I came to poetry at the end of the last century in an outpouring of protest over a green "Yorkshire" rose. Since then I have written well over a thousand poems (and scrapped at least half of them) and begun a rewarding hobby that has seen me performing my own and other people's work around the UK and in America. I have also edited and published many books and articles and written a few acceptable short stories. Including The Complete Poetry of Cicely Fox Smith Co-founder with David Lindsay of the group Talking Zebras I am still enjoying writing, reading and performing poetry and expect to keep on doing so. I am available for talks / lectures.
ICEBOUND Imprisoned in this remote pound Caught were no relief is found Each and every craft is locked Barge and Bargee’s progress blocked Our fodder and food are running low Urgent is our need to go Nowhere here to replenish stores Death has us firmly in his jaws.
