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


Not all cats are fat cats,
some are thin and lean.
Some have eyes of deepest brown,
while others eyes are green.
Some have tails curled over their back,
others tails are small.
Except for the poor old Manx cat,
who has no tail at all.
