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. ...

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.

Anywhere You Choose

With this heart I'll meet you,
With this heart I'll greet you,
Anywhere you choose.

A Day In The Life Of - Me!

I wake up in the morning and pull back the curtains, wide,
And look out through the window to view the world outside,
To see if the sky is blue or grey, sunny or with rain,
And see if the postman's on his way with letters that contain,

Kiss Me

Kiss me and make it seem better,
Kiss me and quiet my heart,
I never once asked for a letter,
Stating you wanted to part.

A Distant View

A distant view
Can beckon you
To dream of unknown destinations
Where life has no more regulations

Ernestine Northover, I love you! I can totally relate every work of yours. It's like you're me, but born earlier

Anne, Amy is all grown up now with children of her own and I don't think she writes poetry at the moment but she may go back to it as she gets older. I know she enjoyed composing the ones I put on my Poemhunter site for her. She was so proud of them. I'm so pleased that your pupils enjoyed them.. A very Happy New Year and may poetry find a place in your pupils hearts. Thank you for comments I will pass them onto her when I next meet her.. Regards Ernestine Northover..

Hi Ernestine. I would love to use your poem as a stimulus for an art project if this is OK with you. You have captured the image of the river very well indeed. Garret.

Love your poetry. Would it be possible to use a phrase to title my paintings?

Part of our German -English lesson book-, thought I found enjambements because often the last word before the comma is alone in one line. But here at the page it's much more structured. So I'll lose the discussion :))

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.

Hello! I am interested in setting one of your poems to music. Is there a way I can contact you directly so that we can discuss the piece and whether or not I can have permission to use your poetry? My email is, if you're able to contact me that way.
