BIOGRAPHY 13/12/2017

David Mitchell,28, lives in Colchester, England, and was educated at Great Totham Primary School, Colchester Royal Grammar School, and the University of Durham. He graduated from Durham with a BA in Music and an MA in Performance. It was while he was at university - on the 11th May,2008 - that he was received into the Catholic Church; and Christian themes are to be found in much of his writing. After he left Durham, he worked as a freelance musician, mainly as a piano teacher and an accompanist for various musical societies. In September 2015 he began teacher training at Colchester County High School and the Stanway School. He worked at CCHS as a music teacher until the summer of 2017.
David began to write poetry in 2005 at the age of 16. His interest in poetry developed from some books his parents had in the house, and especially a very old copy of Francis Palgrave's Golden Treasury, which contains some of the finest lyric verse in the English language. To date, he has written over a hundred poems, many of which are available to read on the website PoemHunter.com.
In his spare time David likes to read, play the piano, and go for walks. He is interested in history, and enjoys visiting historic places.

The Forgotten Dream

I dreamed a dream a while ago —
What it was about I do not know;
For I woke up at the break of the day,
And all of my dreams were melted away.
