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".
