My Old Clock
Poet and author Kevin Morris invites you to join him for the launch of
his latest poetry collection My Old Clock I Wind and other poems on
Wednesday 5th July at 6.30pm at the Railway Bell, 14 Cawnpore Street, Norwood, London SE19 1PF
The title poem of the book.
My Old Clock I Wind
My old clock I wind
And much philosophy therein find.
I can bring
The pendulum’s swing
To a stop With my hand,
Yet I can not command
Time to default
On his duty and halt
The passing of the years.
He has no ears
For our laughter and tears
And his sickle will swing on
Long after we are gone
About Kevin Morris
Kevin comes from Liverpool and attended a number of schools for the
sight impaired and following his A-levels went onto study for his BA in
History and Politics and then his MA in Political Theory at Swansea
Since 1994 he has lived and worked in London where he works
full-time and since 2012 has found the time to write and publish books
and post interesting articles on his blog New Author Online.
The added twist to this is that Kevin uses software that most of you reading this will never have to utilise.
Kevin has been blind since a blood clot caused severe damage when he was
just 18 months old.
Whilst he possesses enough vision to distinguish between light and dark and can see the outlines of objects he requires the assistance of Jaws (Job access with speech) and braille to use his computer.
However, you will find as you enjoy conversations via the web that this
does not cramp his style in anyway and he is a prolific author with
several published collections of his short stories.
Here are Kevin’s Online Links:
Wine and cheese will be provided for guests on the evening and other drinks and refreshments can be purchased at the bar.
Please RSVP to Kevin Morris directly at his email: newauthoronline (AT) gmail (DOT) com
In terms of getting to the venue, the nearest station is Gipsy Hill, which is about a 5 minute walk from the pub.
Crsytal Palace Station is approximately a 10-15 minute walk from the pub.
Kevin looks forward to welcoming you on 5th July to celebrate the publication of his latest work.
