Feedback on my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”

I was delighted to receive the below feedback for my collection of poems, “The Writer’s Pen and Other Poems”, from Alex Lee, who has produced the audio version of the book, (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07GD1LBMV/),

“We have just sent you an MP3 file of the fully produced poems for your approval. They are wonderful poems and Mark, not normally a fan of poetry loved them as he was editing and mastering the tracks, as do I. You have a great gift”.

Graves and Poems

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,

And say,

‘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.
