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?
Sir William Fettes (1750 - 1836) Merchant and philanthropist, who made his fortune from tea and wine. Left money to establish Fettes College (1870), which was designed by David Bryce. The College was intended for the education of poor and orphaned children, but is now one of Scotland's top private schools, although it still retains a tradition of scholarships for poorer children.
