Biography of David Wood

David Wood poet

I thought I'd experiment with different poetry forms for a while to broaden my poetry experience and add variety. I'm now writing lyrics for hymns and songs.

My latest two poems are actually sung to the Finlandia hymn by Jean Sibelius. See my 'O Britain' and 'Hear me my Love.'

A Rainy Woodland Morning

The morning lasted all day
Rain dripped off the backs
Of jet-black ravens
Perched in the branches
Of tired ancient larch.
They looked angrily,
More annoyed,
At magpies foraging
Through lonely sentinel bins.
Who didn’t care about rain,
Only about thieving ravens.

[Hata Bildir]
