Welcome to the poetry page!

The poetry of life makes life worth living, so it is small wonder that poets have always been so closely associated with the highest aspirations of humanity. Below is therefore a personal selection of poetry by various authors, including my own and then some of my favourites from other poets, interspersed with my brief commentaries.

This is not a random compilation of poetry - every item is a fruit which has been hand-picked (and in many cases annotated) for this site! Many of them, too, are gems and masterpieces which I rarely or never find included in any published anthologies, sadly - another reason to highlight them here! I'll also continue to add to this page over time. Feel invited also to share your own favourite poems with me. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have:
