Had a nice surprise the other day.
A poem I wrote after the tsunami in Japan in 2011 is on the school curriculum at a group of London schools.
I appreciate that it’s year 6 primary and not a masters in English Lit. But it’s still very flattering.
Opossum is a federation of schools which includes Newport Primary, Dawlish Primary, Oakhill Primary and Thorpe Hall Primary.
I also came across some samples of poems the students had written after they had studied mine and I was mightily impressed.
And if that poem floats your boat, why not pop over to Amazon where you can avail yourself of my complete collection of poetry and help keep me out of penury!
