    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!

    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.

    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 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,
So far across the waters there
I knew my love did stay,
I wrote her name upon the sand
But waves washed it away.

I watched the clouds like dreams go by
With happiness we shared,
As I looked out across the sea
And wished that she still cared,
I'd lost all hope of loving
And I could but only pray,
I wrote her name upon the sand
But waves washed it away.

Around her name a heart of love
That wasn't meant to be,
A ...

Read the full of I Wrote Her Name Upon The Sand

Across The Field

Across the field I once did stare
Towards the woodland stark and bare
I felt the cold of autumn air
While leaves lay on the ground.

The early morning was so still
As sunlight rose above the hill
And warmed the bitter, morning chill
But could not warm my heart.
