Biography of john coldwell

Only recently started writing poetry. Previously only wrote verse to celebrate special occasions, but increasingly realise that people are more likely to listen/publish your views if they are in verse. Interested in a wide variety of literature and think it important that poetry should have good structure, rhyme and rhythm.

On The River..

O! our joy, the Great, the River Ouse
Thou still retains thine ancient banks
And give us yet those age old views
Of field, and fen, and willowed ranks

Through all the years of industry,
And commerce’s corrupting way,
Thou retains thy liquid purity,
Adorned with mallard, mute and Heron’s prey.
