David Wood Biography

Before I start, please don't ask me for my email address. I only contact fellow poets to comment on their poems, and only on Poemhunter. Thank you.

It's about time I added a biography, a bit late I know. A biography is defined as the course of a persons life. I prefer a patchwork weaved over time. My patchwork has many colours. Work is one, a former management accountant, a black and white one, activities another, time is another, relationships and space another. My activities are the colour blue, I have flown light aircraft and gliders in a pale blue sky. I have dived the deep blue oceans, and snorkelled with pilot whales off Lanzarote, another blue. I was the training officer for Hounslow BSAC and taught many people to dive. It had its ups and downs. If I were a cat I would have lost ...

The visit to the poetry page of David Wood is wonderful for many strong reasons of good reading, especially the SONNET form in the modern shape. Those students who consult this site for the purpose of studying poetry, as poemhunter is serving the needs of Cambridge students as well as the research scholars who are working on Explication de Texte, they can consult this page as the living example of modern sonnet written in traditional rhyme-scheme, mostly The English sonnet i.e Shakespearean. The Rhyme-scheme and the rhyming analysis is available here...David's sonnets are lucid in diction, natural in flow and easy to follow...the following information is added from the web source, as this is the right place for it: SONNET - - - - - - - - - - (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - A sonnet is a poetic form which originated in Italy; the Sicilian poet Giacomo da Lentini is credited with its invention.[1] The term sonnet derives from the Italian word sonetto, meaning little song, and by the thirteenth century it signified a poem of fourteen lines that follows a strict rhyme scheme and specific structure. Conventions associated with the sonnet have evolved over its history. Writers of sonnets are sometimes called sonneteers, although the term can be used derisively. One of the best-known sonnet writers is William Shakespeare, who wrote 154 of them (not including those that appear in his plays) . A Shakespearean, or English, sonnet consists of fourteen lines written in iambic pentameter, in which a pattern of an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable is repeated five times. The rhyme scheme in a Shakespearean sonnet is a-b-a-b, c-d-c-d, e-f-e-f, g-g; the last two lines are a rhyming couplet. Nice poetry David Wood! ! !

The Best Poem Of David Wood


Bluebells carpet the woodland floor
Packed so tightly that insects tip-toe
Softly and quietly between them.
Their beauty unlocks a woodland door

With such colour of delicate blue,
And a fragrance that is heaven sent.
They droop their heads in the spring rain,
With their beauty making all things new.

Their magic weaves a pleasant spell
A sea of blue that meanders in the breeze
And floats delicately over the forest floor,
Their fragrance creates a delicate smell.

Nature now has all its beauty brought
To the fore before summer casts its spell
Delicate bluebells making spring so fine
Their time on earth far too short.
