Comments about Douglas Scotney

  • Michael Walker (2/27/2018 8:50:00 PM)

    A prolific poet who is transforming himself in ideas and forms. Not one for the long poem, he keeps to
    shorter poems that make the reader really think about the meaning. Has a deep knowledge of cricket and writes very good poems about the sport, but not too many. In fact, Doug has a wide and comprehensive number of topics to write about.

2014 Poet Wishes

2 actually.

For 2014
I would share the wish
that what happens
happens out of care

and wish
that bad and good make room
for greatness
as their heir.

Dorothy's Response

There is an eminence amongst our hills.
There is a deep quiet in its height.
A man I love of lofty mind
Shares with that mount its quiet.

I admire the quiet.
I seem to require it,
Though it limpens his love for me.

If I wasn't so dotty
Instead of 'YOUR EMINENCE'
I'd have called it 'MOUNT DOROTHY'.
