On Wednesday 13 March, I shall be giving a private poetry reading, along with several other poets. I have a slot of 15 minutes to fill, and I am in the process of determining which of my poems to read. Thus far I have decided to recite the below poems:
I shall be spending part of my weekend in deciding which of my other poems to read.
Sorting through my work kindles in me a desire to publish a “selected Poems”. This is, I think a longer-term project requiring considerable thought and much burning of the midnight oil. It is, nonetheless something on which my heart is set.
I love the way you read your poetry. Very compelling. I can see how it could be hard to choose. Best of luck on your readings😊
Thank you so much for your kind words on how I read my poetry. Thanks also for your good wishes for my readings on 13th March. Kind regards – Kevin

These are all good poems. I like the diversity in each one.
Do you actually recite your poems from memory? That’s amazing. Good luck.
I am delighted you enjoyed listening/reading my poems, Abbie, and thank you for your very kind words. I usually read from paper to avoid mistakes while reading, and this is what I did in the case of the poems on Youtube. I do, however remember quite a few of my poems, but having them written down avoids slip-ups on my part. Best wishes – Kevin
