Biography of John C Bird

My poetry has been widely used in magazines, newspapers and anthologies. My other published and broadcast work includes plays, short stories, television comedy material, and non-fiction books. Details are available on my website: Updates


It’s where Miss Brodie enjoyed her prime
and beauty rubs shoulders with tenement grime,
where Stevenson roamed the Georgian squares
and Scott has that monument with all those stairs,
where Connery delivered the milk each day
before a licence to kill brought better pay,
where each night the castle gets lit up
like the Murrayfield crowd at the Calcutta Cup,
where you can take a rest on Arthur’s seat
