About The Book
This is a collection of poems written over many years and for many reasons. There is no connecting overall idea. The subjects range from the sublime to the ridiculous, from a garden party at Buckingham Palace to saving the life of a whale, and in many other directions. I have always wanted to know more. Why was Wordsworth wandering that hill when he saw those daffodils? And what was the inspiration for the word jabberwocky? Words have always fascinated me, but ideas even more so. When I decided to put my poems together, I was always going to put the reason I wrote each verse, so the reader would get more from each piece.
