    William Mickle is my 7th g/uncle. His father Rev. Archibald Meikle was the brother to my 7th g/grandfather. Perhaps it is William who I get my poetry writing from as no-one in my family does poetry.

    William Julius Mickle is my 7th G/uncle and his name was originally Meikle. His father, Rev. Archibald was brother to my 7th G/grandfather Robert Meikle. Perhaps it is he who I get my writing of poems from as no-one else in my family writes!

Cumnor Hall

The dews of summer nighte did falle,
The moone (sweete regente of the skye)
Silver'd the walles of Cumnor Halle,
And manye an oake that grewe therebye.

Nowe noughte was hearde beneath the skies,
(The soundes of busye lyfe were stille,)
Save an unhappie ladie's sighes,
That issued from that lonelye pile.

[Hata Bildir]
