Edward Slow (1841 – 16 February 1925) was a poet born in Wilton, Wiltshire, England. By profession he was a carriage builder. He wrote many poems and tracts based on his everyday observations of contemporary Victorian and Edwardian rural life. The poems, or ‘rhymes’ as he preferred to call them, were written in a style that was intended to phonetically emulate the rural Wiltshire accent.
