I have just updated my About page and Amazon Author Pages to include my books ‘The Writers Pen and Other Poems‘ and ‘My Old Clock I Wind: and Other Poems‘.
Changes to the About Page can be seen here.
A number of my poems reference All Saints Church and, in particular it’s graveyard, although none refer to that place of worship by name. The church was constructed between 1827-29 and you can find out about it’s history here. As regards the graveyard, you can read about it here and here.
As mentioned above, a number of my poems refer to All Saints Church Graveyard, including ‘In the Churchyard today’:
In the Churchyard today,
Through the play,
Of light and shade,
I my shadow made.
When I go away,
Will my shadow stay,
Behind for people to see,
‘That was he,
And now midst light and shade,
His shadow is forever made’.
This poem can be found in ‘The Writers Pen and other poems’, with the UK and US links following:
With thanks to my friend Shanelle, I have included below several photographs which show All Saints Church and its environs. In the tiled mosaic image below there are photographs of myself and Trigger in the graveyard, as well as the church and some of the graves.
I was pleased to receive the below review of my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”:
“Having read previous poetry collections by the author, I was eager to read this one. I was not disappointed. This is a great collection of thought-provoking poems. “Indefinable” is a particular favourite of mine from this collection”.

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by traditional (pendulum) clocks. The slow movement of the pendulum reminds me of Old Father Time chopping up seconds which will never return. There is, in the swing of a pendulum something both comforting and chastening. The slow swing reminds one of a slower pace of life, of a more stable/traditional society, while one is also conscious that each movement brings one’s demise fractionally closer. A number of my poems touch (either directly or indirectly) on the passage of time, including “The Hands Are Almost At Half-Past”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2quCnrHgpE4.
“The Hands Are Almost At Half-Past” can be found in my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”, which is available for preorder in the Amazon Kindle store, https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07GD1LBMV/ (for the UK) and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GD1LBMV/ (for the USA).
