The Poem of the week part of the website is now up and running. The idea is that each week (hopefully) I’ll put up something new from my back catalogue for you to read and enjoy. But not only will you get the poem itself, you’ll also be able to read something about it – maybe where the idea came from, or how I went about writing it, or maybe I’ll talk a bit about where it was first published, if it ever was. Hopefully you’ll find this interesting and informative, not just as a reader but also, perhaps, as a potential poet yourself.
To kick things off I’ve chosen something quite old and not at all like most of my other work. But the creative process was interesting and also very well documented, so I thought it would be a good place to start. Enjoy.
