The website has quite a lot to offer you, ranging from the sadness of the Hillsborough Disaster and the all embracing terror of WW1 to lightheartedness elsewhere. What Passes for Humour and the collection of Limericks are hopefully lighthearted, while Poems of Circumstance and the sonnets are perhaps reflective and more varied.
My sonnets appear in Masquerade because of the continuing tussle between those who treasure the iambic pentameter and those who wish to relax the straight jacket of regulation. Sonnets are so attractive to write; there’s something about their length and style that greatly appeals to me. Anyway, they tell me they like masquerading as true sonnets whatever the traditionalists might think!
Currently, there are two poems that are linked with their translations, one Welsh, the other Italian.
Some poems appear more than once when they qualify for more than one category; for example a war poem that is also a sonnet. I hope you don’t object!
Have a stroll round the website and I truly hope you’ll find something to please you. Most writers will insist that they write from the heart and I’m no exception. I’ve thrown my heart and soul into much that I’ve produced, as maybe you’ll be able to tell.
Please leave me a comment, should you so wish.
With grateful thanks to Tanju and Paul for their superlative efforts in recreating my website.
