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.
