Biography of Kate Beamish

Now living in Somerset. Have five adult children and five Grandchildren. Also love painting and gardening.
Have been writing poetry for approximately twenty five years. Never consciously write on a subject, but rather 'as the spirit moves'. Usually don't make any adjustments to scanning, rhyme or rythm, just keep scribbling as fast as I can to catch the words as they come from somewhere.
Among my favourite poets are Longfellow, Betjeman and Pam Ayres.

The Village Hall

Built solidly of stone or bricks,
no pebble-dash or fancy tricks.
Constructed to perform a duty,
not meant to be a thing of beauty.

The roof’s not made of pretty thatch,
the door has sturdy metal latch,
no knocker gleams, no knob of brass.
The windows don’t have coloured glass.
