I Wrote Her Name Upon The Sand

I walked along the shoreline
As the ocean looked so blue,
The seagulls called upon the wind
Above me as they flew,

A Part Of Me Died With You

I still remember heartache like
I'd never felt before,
With every hour that passes by
I miss you more and more,

A Child Upon The Doorstep Weeps

A child upon the doorstep weeps
ignored from passers-by,
She wipes away her lonely tears
Upon her woollen sleeve,

All Through The Barren Winter

All through the barren winter
I have waited for this day,
To see the signs of springtime
With its colours on display,

A Country Boy At Heart

I want to climb the hillsides
And to see each wondrous view,
And find the peace I long for there
It's all I wish to do,

I love 'The Water Wheel' and am intending to include it in my folder of work for my Grade 4 London College of Music Speech & Drama exam, which I'm planning to take in the Autumn term. I love your work! It's so descriptive and really paints a picture! I've got a few poems on here too.

This poem is a reflection of two eras and the style is that of some one born in the sixties, it reminds me of the hovis advert ''me mam went downt shops today real bread and real butter stuff, sixties children generally in england lived in the new generation of freedom and jet fighters the dandy the beano alf tupper out of the victor, we looked around and believed in ideals, believing this awful situation was of a time before the last war aware of a dark past but in reality many children are still abandoned home alone under the same darkness, society and social values have been totally eroded, times are very victorian with a laser twist all advocated by Margaret milk snatcher Thatchershe got what she wanted gloom and doom

Andrew is a fine lyrical poet, reminiscent of John Keats. He has polished his poetic craft till it shines and his phrasing and style are impeccable and always satisfying. He combines a fine poetic ear, a discerning poetic voice and the eye of one who notices and cares. It is always a joy to read your work, Andrew. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

To Andrew Blakemore and others whom it may concern, Andrew is a 'poet's poet extraordinaire', highly polished in th' art of painting scenes from his words, bringing out those vibrant colours enhancing and capturing th' senses of th' love, life and beauty 'that surrounds us all' - He has without a doubt, turned out through his unique talent and gift, 'poetry that are murals' from the gallery of his mind. Best regards my friend! Thad

Andrew Blakemore has the once in a lifetime talent of a writter with so many forms of imagery, his journey may take you to the hills to the ocean, or just to watch a snow flake fall, he can make you cry, feel sad, for feel so happy to be alive, his easy flow makes it such a pleasure for the reader to enjoy whatever beholds in the mind of the writter. His sensitivity shows true colour with every emoiton within his soul... There are many writters in this world as far back as time permits, with suspence, romance, humor and many more, THEN there is Andrew Blakemore.....

Andrew has a unique style, he draws the reader in with his wonderfully woven poetry on any subject, so vivid the reader could be there looking on, a fantastic modern day poet who is well worth taking a look at, you will not be disappointed. Lynda

Andrew is a 'natural' and his poems are a joy to find. He is a weaver of such excellence and one cannot be unmoved when reading his works. He has a wonderful way of explaining his subjects and brings his storylines to life in a very special way. I am always thrilled to read each poem he writes and the pleasure is all mine. If you want to find a fine poet, he is here.

I have perceived who Andrew Blakemore is only through his writings, which I enjoy tremendously. They put the reader in the place where he is and every thing described can be seen or visualized in the mind. I have never written poetry before November 2007, but a person does not need to be an expert to know when someone's writing is good or not. When the words are concise, understandable, combined correctly with others, simple, these are the poems a majority of readers can appreciate and enjoy. Thank you Andrew for sharing your mind with all of us. Jeannie
