Poems

This section contains poems written between the early 1980s and today.

I have written throughout those years, but not consistently.

Most of the poems are from the years 2010 onwards. Many resulting from assignments completed for courses at The Poetry School.

I hope I write straightforward poems. Simple themes, responses to events and situations. Some are written as exercises in form – sestinas, villanelles, sonnets – but more are free verse. 

Many are still drafts. The collection isn’t presented as finished work. It’s here as a window into work in progress in various stages of completion. With a bit of luck, some of them will become a pamphlet in 2022/23.
