Videos of Poet Kevin Morris reading from his book ‘Light and shade; serious (and not so serious) poems

I have just uploaded several videos to Youtube of me reading poems from my book ‘Light and Shade; serious (and not so serious) poetry. A lot of the poems were read next to the Wood near my home, and due to the wind, the sound quality is impaired.

A Poem From My “Selected Poems”

The traffic noise momentarily fades.
No words,
Just the singing of birds,
And a yearning for woodland glades.

(“Indefinable” can be found in my Selected Poems”, which is available here:

Fine Rain

I get wet
By this fine
Rain.
Yet,
I do not regret
For the divine
Is in the rain.

I shall get wet
Again
For when
Death does steal
Me away.
I regret
That I shall no longer feel,
The joy of a rainy day.
