Biography of Francesca Marriner
Well growing up i have always loved poetry from querky funny poems to Jabberwocky. My love for poems has always been innate and ever present, but when it came to studying poerty at GCSE i felt that i did not have the chance to enjoy the poetry of Armitage and Duffy but that it was a struggle and necessity to study it. Now at 17 i am currently studying for my A levels. In English i am reading Plath and Larkin poetry which has reawakened my love for the verse. This enthusiasm and love especially by Sylvia Plath and by having a fabulous English teacher, has encouraged me to write poetry i hope people will enjoy. Also my father Anthony Marriner who has also submitted poetry to this site has written some beautiful poems that have inspired me to follow in his legacy.

in the confusion of your words.
Glimpses of our romance haunt my
