I was born in a little mining town in South Wales quite a few years ago. I started writing poetry when I was about 17.Some of my poems are very personal, covering events in my life while others I hope, are humourous.I'm never going to be a Poet Laureate but as long as I enjoy writing them who cares.My approach to poetry is simple, I believe that the vast majority of people are frightened by the language a lot of poets use. Poets who seemed to have swallowed a dictionary and use words that most people have never heard of and certainly would never use. I try to keep my poems simple so people find them easy to read. I welcome any comments good, bad or indifferent.

    I was searching for another family member who wrote poetry when I came across this page. I am now wondering if this John Wathen is also a member of my family tree. Could you tell me who the parents are of John Wathen?

Best Poem of John Wathen

Christmas Fairy

I am a poor old fairy,
from the top of the christmas tree.
And as you enjoy yourselves this Christmas,
spare a thought for me.
While you are having a jolly time,
with your presents from Santa's sack.
I'm stuck six foot in the air,
with a pine tree up my crack.
