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.

Can't Say Superstition

There's not a superstitious one
as superstitious as a one
makin a livin upon a ship upon
what a superstitious one
has to call Blue John.

Sayin 'the sea' instead
ain't 'alf what brings bad luck.
One can't say 'duck', has to say 'daffy';
