Anthony Di'anno (North Yorkshire)
Biography of Anthony Di'anno
Grrrrr, I am going to be a poet,
Apostrophy's haunt me.
As do the commas,
The council house grammar school,
The limits in vocabulary.
Still I am going to be a poet.
Regardless of the well fertilised soil my words have grown in,
BECAUSE OF IT,
I am going to be a poet.
Not so that I may write great tomes to vanity's muse.
Nor to knock on doors seeking her vote.
Merely so that I may share words that have grown,
In worlds I have known,
True to their right.
In their true light,
I am going to be a poet,
My interpret heart,
Out in the open,
Fearless and free,
I am going to be more than this poet,
I am going to be all that is me.
First I must learn how to read.
People who read Anthony Di'anno also read
Bright eyed, soft feathered,
loved beyond limited word.
My heart strings are tethered,
to you beautiful bird.
A ring perched on my finger,
you hold more than I know.
