Biography of Patrick Ladbrooke
I began to discover literature, including poetry just 3 years ago at the age of 57, after spending my whole career as a chemist. I have written some short stories and poems since, some of which have been published, but only in places that will publish anything. It's a hobby really (he says, wishing he could make a success of it!) .

The Kissing Gate
There is a five bar gate,
white, by a woodland track
where, half a century back,
we talked till evening late.
Then walking in the almost dark,
her radiance and the night
made each and every footstep light,
as she breathed life to love's spark.
