Why write poetry, Poet?
I was always quoting poetry to friends, so poetry was always in my head.
How did you get started writing poetry?
Now that I have retired, I have more time to think and the first attempt was "Shipyards". I now have about twenty poems.
Who were your influences?
Influences - no one in particular, though my favourite is "Lord Ullins Daughter".
Examples of poetry.
Who are the Scots?
Earl Haig (1861 - 1928) Field Marshall. Commanded the allied troops on the Western Front during the First World War. Later criticised for conduct of the campaign because of the very high casualty figures at the Battle of the Somme. Founded the Earl Haig Fund for the assistance of disabled ex-servicemen (the poppy appeal).
