I started writing sonnets in 2009 having been inspired by the poems of Shakespeare, Sir Thomas Wyatt and Spencer. My excursions into blank verse and alternative structures are inspired by the work of Milton, Auden, Hughes, Hardy and Frost. My aim is merely to capture the essence of an idea or emotion and to weave it with other analogous subjects within an enduring metaphorical framework. I often combine subjects with Falconry. more »

    Dear Alison Hunter,
    Thank you for your kind comment. I shall try to download some more for you. You must try the sonnet sometime. Think of it as a four stanza poem with Intro, development, finale, conclusion. Good luck!

Best Poem of Colin Breck Boardman

The Painter Searching With His Eyes

The painter searching with his eyes,
Finds fickle beauty to espy;
The poet weaving metaphors,
Turns upon an obscure clause;
The falconer with hungry hawk
Between the shadows lightly stalks;
Uncertain what will there appear
Born upon a smile or tear;
As lovers wend beneath the stars
Each must fasten on their prey,
Or else let spritely spirits pass
If all should shyly melt away.
