MY AMAZING PHONE CALL FROM BUCKINGHAM PALACE

MY AMAZING PHONE CALL FROM BUCKINGHAM PALACE...INCLUDING COMMENTS FROM FACEBOOK



WOW!!!! I've just received a phone call (which I thought was a hoax) from a spokesperson at Buckingham Palace. They did ask me some "ID" questions - as I just might be an undesirable - linked to terrorists! But after I cleared security they very calmly asked me if I was Darryl Ashton, the poet? Originally from Great Harwood - now living in Blackpool? I said; "yes, I am". Then they very politely asked me if I could possibly write a special poem for both Kate and Prince William as a special tribute for their second baby? I am very honoured - and so very flattered to be asked. I have agreed to write two poems for them - but on one condition - they make a donation to a children's charity for children who suffer with cancer? They have agreed to this. They also asked me; 'will I make both poems of a comedy nature?' Of course I will. Anything to oblige our royalty!! Now how's that for a welcoming phone call call on a Monday morning?! Please stay tuned for more details. Sorry, but I will NOT be informing the local Blackpool newspaper the Gazette. They just hate any kind of good and positive news!!!! hopefully, I do hope to get an invite to actually deliver the poems in person. And maybe ask for a...KNIGHTHOOD!!!!!!!!!! LOL. You know folks - it isn't every day a poet gets a phone call from Buckingham Palace requesting them to write a couple of poems! I do feel so very very honoured. Have a great Monday - and that also includes all the lovely staff at Buckingham Palace. God Bless the Queen - Kate and Prince William.

Darryl Ashton Hello Teri. Yes, indeed. I do know my dad's looking down and saying to God - and the other angels in heaven: "That's my boy." I wish I could go up there for 24 hours - what a surreal poem I'd write for Good God - and all the angels. And, yes, I do feel so very proud - this just doesn't happen everyday to all budding poets. But I do think this is absolutely amazing local news. Take Care. God Bless You, Teri. xxxx

Darryl Ashton Hello Matthew. Yes, fabulous news like this - is so very very rare. I am expecting to hear from them again - as to when they want the poems for - and if they want them signing. But to be asked in the first place - really is an honour. Cheers amigo!
