Whilst looking through my poems with a view to recording some of them for Tiktok, I came across the below, which is reproduced here. This poem does not currently appear in any of my published works.

Some thought his poetry meant this
And others that.
He wore a hat
And often, (being lost in rhymes)
Went out with no raincoat.
He had no moat
And little private wealth.
The reader sighs
Trying to categorise
The poet’s view.
Some declare he was a Tory of the deepest blue,
(While others protest this was not true)!
A few saw a man of the left,
But found themselves bereft
On finding verse which, they say,
Romanticised the nobility of yesterday.
Perhaps the poet smiles somewhere,
Or, perchance he doesn’t care.
For who knows
Where the rhymer goes
When his ink runs dry
And his words finally die.
