    Ivor the master's craftman of poetry...his compositions were all carefully studied and penned, leaving no flaws to make it ageless. Perfectionist, using simple smooth flow of words with a very nice imagery. A true poet using rhymes and rhythms to all his glittering works...

    I am a fan Sir.

it left its mark and then it skipped.

The parish priest proclaimed that he
had cause to curse the cunning cat
for sacrilege and blasphemy.

He double damned the dastard cat
