He did go gently into that goodnight,
Gladly embracing the golden light.
The one-time poet from the street.
Sauntered off to eternal sleep
Dashing off a few lines
About the times,
when his head was in a swirl
With his love for the poetic word.
It is with sadness that our family announce that our dad Harry died peacefully on 1st February 2018 aged 89 year.
Our dad really enjoyed being a part of the Write Out Loud community and it became a big focus for him in the last few years. He was so enthusiastic about the possibilities the online poetry community offered. He looked forward to reading the work of others and he really valued the comments his poems received from his fellow poets.
Funeral arrangements as follows
9.30am Monday 12th February 2018
Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church
Liverpool L9 2DG
Fellow poets welcome!
