Biography of Colin Breck Boardman

Colin Breck Boardman poet

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.

There Are No Words

There are no words,
No words to be read;
That which remains,
Remains unsaid;
There is no key,
No key to the door;
Nothing to dream,
No dreams anymore;
Only the beat,
The beat of one's heart,
Beating in time,
The time to depart.
