I was pleased to receive the following review of “My Old Clock I Wind” (audio download from Audible):
“I originally read this as an eBook, and wrote the following review for it:
quote;This is another excellent collection of poems by this author. Some are amusing, like the poem “Howling At The Moon” (one of my favourites of this collection) while others are extremely thought-provoking, like “Evening Walk” (another favourite of mine from this collection). In other words, this collection is a pleasant read, filled with poems which will have you either chuckling in amusement, or lost in musings on topics most can relate to even if they haven’t spent much time considering them before.unquote;
My review still stands, though I’d like to add that it was nice to get to listen to the poems being read out. The narrator did a good job”.
I was honoured to appear on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s The World Poetry Reading Series, at approximately 9:21 (UK time) on the evening of Thursday 11th January. During the broadcast I discussed (and read) my poetry.
To listen to a podcast of the broadcast please visit http://worldpoetry.ca/?p=12516. My segment can be found approximately 51 minutes into the broadcast.
I would like to thank Ariadne Sawyer and all at the World Poetry Reading Series for hosting me.
On checking Goodreads today, I was delighted to come across the below review of my collection of poetry, “My Old Clock I Wind”:
“A wonderful collection of poems by the talented Kevin Morris all of which have the underlying theme of life and time passing.
Three of my favourite poems from this collection are as follows:
Hatters and hares – a very clever poem based on Alice’s experience of having tea with the March Hare and the Mad Hatter in the classic story Alice in Wonderland.
The poem makes the point that everything in our technology based word is not as it seems and that the progress we think we see is deceptive;
What is a double bed? – this extraordinary poem also makes the point that life is temporary and illustrates how we need to grasp it and make the most of
life’s moments before we pass on; and
Count Dracula Went Out to Dine – this poem appealed to my dark sense of humour and I found the depiction of Count Dracula out for a meal and his interaction
with the staff in the restaurant very interesting and amusing.
If you like intriguing and well written poetry, then this is the book for you”.

The first 2 people to email me will receive a promotional code enabling them to download “My Old Clock I Wind” FREE.
Please note, audible.co.uk codes only work on the UK site and audible.com codes only work on the US website. However listners not based in either the UK or USA may still use a promotional code (provided that the code is used on the site for which it was issued). So, for example a person resident in Australia can not use a promotional code for audible.co.uk or audible.com on the Australian site (audible.com/au). They may, however go to either audible.co.uk or audible.com and use the code (making sure that their browser does not redirect them to the Australian Audible site). This may entail opening a new account on either audible.co.uk or audible.com.
A relative resident in Australia was able to download “My Old Clock” by going to audible.com (despite the attempts of his browser to redirect him to audible.com/au)!
The above is somewhat confusing for which I apologise! If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.
