Ever since my father bought me a copy of Palgrave's Treasury when I was in my teens, I have loved poetry.  My copy tends to fall open at Emily Dickinson's poem that starts "My life closed twice before its close", which remains one of my all time favourites.

I have tried and failed to write poems many many times.  At school I wrote song lyrics and tried to put them to music but generally, I failed to make it past the first verse and chorus. 

Here I will record my occasional attempts...please don't feel obliged to read them.
