This collection of poems represents a cross-section of my work spanning the last four decades. For me, the poems are indicative of a certain restlessness. They are of shadow - the darker side of my nature - although light does peek through on occasions.
There are poems of hope and poems of despair; there are oratory poems of a Milton and Shakespearian tenor. In my quieter moments I have contemplated the beauty of nature and of parenthood. There are poems in which humour plays a part, spiked with a fair measure of cynicism and a little touch of optimism. There are poems of social commentary and thoughtful poems of contemplation.
I would like to believe that this small anthology contains a poem for you. Find just one and I will be satisfied. Find more than one and I will be very happy.
