In my working life I was a Floral Artist, creating floral arrangements for births, weddings and funerals. A demanding but very satisfying career. I have had two commissions to create floral bouquets for Queen Elizabeth II, which was a great honour.

I have two children a boy and a girl, and two grandchildren, a girl and a boy -13 yrs and 11 yrs. I paint in oils, watercolours and pastels and also sketching/drawing. Have studied the Japanese language, created tapestries. I love books mostly historical - fact or fiction. Music, (Classical, Traditional Jazz, Musicals and anything relaxing. I love photography, as my daughter is a portrait photographer, and she has sparked my interest.... more »

    I read to the children in my local primary school. There are nine, aged from just under 5 to 11 years. Our project this term is 'Lost Words' from the beautiful book by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris. This week we wrote poems about ferns but next week we look at Autumn - which is how I found 'Autumn - by Amy Boothby - Aged 10' I read it today and everyone loved it. Could you tell me something about Amy, please? The children were very interested in her. Thank you.

    I only read a few of your poems but I really like what I read so far. I 'recently' started writing poetry myself a few years ago and I found inspirations in your words. Thank you.

Best Poem of Ernestine Northover

Hold You In My Smile

Sweet moment, stay with me,
and pray do not flee so soon,
Let me enjoy the bliss of that
first kiss beneath the moon.
I wish to cradle this feeling,
that has only just been found,
A feeling that has unexpectedly
turned my world around.
Do not depart, Oh please remain
within my heart awhile,
So that I can savour you once more,
and hold you in my smile.
