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?
Mary, Queen of Scots
(1542 - 1587)
Was the last Roman Catholic monarch of Scotland. After many fierce religious disputes with John Knox and much political wrangling among her nobles, she was imprisoned and forced to abdicate in 1567 in favour of her son James VI. She escaped and fled to England but was imprisoned and held captive for 18 years. Later she was put to death by her cousin Queen Elizabeth I of England.
