I am a doctor based in UK and have served the National health service for nearly 30 years. Poetry has been my interest from a very early age and read poetry in Hindi, Tamil and English. 
My all time favourite poem is the Elegy in a country churchyard by Thomas Gray, I love Robert Frost, Browning, Wordsworth and Tennyson. I have made a pilgrimage to their birthplace.My favourite writers include Somerset Maugham and Dapne Du Maurier.
I love reading poetry but like great poems that are not lost in extreme verbosity, a tendency for many who employ free verse. Christina Rossetti is a great example of a poet who conveyed beautiful thoughts in simple language. 
' Home they brought her Warrior dead' is a good example of a brilliant poem written with the simplest of words.

I look forward to reading the brilliant works of the many poets on Poetry Soup.



Poetry Anthology 1 & 2

Blog Posted:7/18/2020 8:56:00 AM

Please see the two poems on my poetry soup site 

Anthology 1 and 2  

This is put together by me but the poem is made up of some brilliant stanzas from our poetry soup colleagues whom I have acknowledged at the bottom of their stanza. Please do read and comment. It is my fervent wish that when the anthology book comes out, these two poems are included. 
I would like to thank all the poets who participated and congratulations to the winners.
