From a celebration of the harsh but beautiful Pennine landscape to soft, evocative memories of past times and a celebration of nature, this collection offers something for every taste.
The poems cover a wide range of subjects from the heartbreak of lost love, to pen portraits of people and everyday occurrences as seen through the eyes of a child. All will provide lines that will stay in the mind long after they have been read. Some will be thought-provoking or prompt a wave of sadness. Others will bring a smile in recognition of the keen observations of the mundane occurrence of our daily lives.

“But you no longer share my dreams 

And spent passion has replaced my mystery.”


“We hate the supermarket queue 

When people stand too close to you 

And tut if there is some delay 

Or think you take too long to pay.” 

The Supermarket Queue

“My bleak boulders and black tarns

Reflect the brooding darkness of your northern skies.”
