Ernestine Northover (25th March 1943)
Biography of Ernestine Northover
In my working life I was a Floral Artist, creating floral arrangements for births, weddings and funerals. A demanding but very satisfying career. I have had two commissions to create floral bouquets for Queen Elizabeth II, which was a great honour.
I have two children a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, a girl and a boy - 7 yrs and 5 yrs. I paint in oils, watercolours and pastels and sketching/drawing. Have studied the Japanese language, created tapestries. I love books mostly historical - fact or fiction. Music, (Classical, Traditional Jazz, Musicals and anything relaxing. I love photography, as my daughter is a portrait photographer, and she has sparked my interest.
I love communicating with people and tend to see the funny side of life, as you may see by my poems. It is a wonderful way of expelling stress, releasing emotions from loss and sadness, and also sharing happiness. A great way to express oneself and see nature and life in all its beauty.
I don't class myself as an expert with poetry, I just enjoy creating it, and hope people will like and take pleasure in reading what I have written.

Why are we so at daggers drawn,
With anger and with hate,
Why has this become a duel at dawn,
Why can't we now relate.
Why are you expressing so much scorn,
I sense that it's too late.
I'm feeling so totally forlorn,
