    Danny has a deft touch that draws the reader in to the natural world.
    His poetry is intricately crafted and fascinating.

    You are an excellent poet. Your poems encourage one to think about life a little more than if they hadn't been read. Thank you, I shall enjoy a poem a day of yours to consider your thoughts on life in general. Nessy x

Best Poem of Danny Draper

For The Longest Time

For the longest time

Random absent reason bore
Irrational heinous deeds,
Stranger violated sanctuary
Fixing their confused memories,
And restlessness

Spring tide of native tongue,
Pollen grains dust 'n' fury
Ticked days fell from union,
And laid

They chanced upon
The life cleft beauty,
Sullen indolent skin
Ambient with cold earth,
And talked
for the longest time.

They watched over
The dispersing elements,
Disinterested in ...

The Good Old Days

There never were the good old days
as those that remember say,
For the days they remember

and then,
they were too young to remember.
