Wigan Pier


For years
Years and years and years
He lived in Asia
A master... (Somehow)
Much he did not write
But to soldiers “Stand-up”
(As patriot, nationalist)
For the ‘Great War’
But for Wigan
(Poor of the higher race)
And against ‘The others’
He became trumpet...
Blown voice to space...

What a shame...
Heart of Darkness

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
