Latitude I think of us fading. In that old house. Sometimes, listening to music, through silence. Van Morrison for me. A Prince for you. Tea, cigarettes. The occasional flicker. When we said goodbye, in that swept room. We were searching for embers, of an old time. When the phone was off the hook, the duvet distressed. And now I’ve walked north, to invent my wheel. You are forever south. Wild eyed and legless. In your dreamt fantastic place, that you’ll never visit. Latitude divides us. Don’t ever bring out your map. Ralph Dartford

Hello Ralph, I have only been on this site since the beginning of March. This evening I discovered you. I have spent quite some time reading a number of your poems. You write with blatant honesty from the depths of your being. Some of what you say really touched me to the quick. I shall be on the lookout for more poetry from you. Thanks a lot. Keith

RD - thanks for the kind reply to my comments on
your latest post.
I was very young when discovering the work of
W.S. Gilbert, and his genius for coupling words
never left left my memory. Indeed, I understand
he also inspired wordsmiths like P.G. Wodehouse
and Cole Porter. Not bad examples to keep in
mind!
Best wishes for your own work.
