Bloggers PhotoMy Biography is Coming Soon... Hello all you wonderful people, this is one of the friendliest sites I have visited and really enjoy the poetry and friends I have made.
A lot of my poetry comes from the university of life, my subjects though sometimes controversial are never meant to hurt, I as most do poets I draw from love, hurt, sadness and the environment. I have served in war, worked in famine and disaster relief, enduered pain, joy and dissapointment as most of us have. My only hope is that you enjoy some of my work as much as I enjoy yours. I am English but live in the centre of France, the area is called the Morvan, mainly national forest, lakes, beauty for all seasons, I live here and care for my mother 84 years old and partialy sighted, bright as a button and great company. Well just a little insight, keep the ink flowing Daniel.  Just to say the two dogs my best friends, the lab x husky is called Solo, the black collie with white feet is called Socks, they show so much loyalty and love, humans could learn a lot. 

He Paid The Price

The young man limped to

chair, dragging his despair

with a cheerful air.

I see that all your footwear

is at half price, that is quite

relevant seeing that I have

only one leg. Don't worry

I am not going to ask for

half of half price, for I have

paid the full price before, I

will keep the other shoe as

a token of memory.

The young ex soldier left

the shop in step with life.

We owe so much to thesegallant men and women

    I love that ending line "in step with life" And that attitude will get him very far! Was this something you wrote yourself? It's wonderful.

    Welcome to the Soup. My brother is a disabled Nam vet. Luckily, my career never took me into battle (30 yrs). God Bless the troops of every nation. Vince
