A Compliment From A Stranger

This morning, I popped out for breakfast. As I was in the process of leaving the pub, a gentleman acosted me and asked, “are you the guy who writes poetry?” somewhat surprised, I replied in the affirmative. He then proceeded to relate how he had bought 2 of my books in the local bookstore as a birthday present for his sister, and how much she had enjoyed reading them. Naturally I thanked him for having purchased my books, expressed pleasure that his sister had enjoyed reading them, and left the pub with a feeling of happiness at the thought that a reader had derived enjoyment from my work.


The books purchased by the gentleman where “Lost in the Labyrinth of My Mindhttp://moyhill.com/lost/, and “My Old Clock I Windhttp://moyhill.com/clock/, both of which have been kindly stocked by my local bookstore, The Bookseller Crow on the Hill, https://booksellercrow.co.uk/.

Whilst I have received many lovely comments on this website regarding my poetry, and compliments from family and friends concerning my books, its a rare treat to receive a compliment from a stranger. So via this post I would like to take the opportunity to thank the gentleman who purchased my books and, of course his sister for reading “Lost” and “My Old Clock”. I am delighted that she derived pleasure from my poetry.
