Les Derbyshire

Biography of Les Derbyshire

I now live in the 'West Country' of England, in a village, in a quiet valley. I'm sure that this has an influence on the way I write and certainly on some of the subject matter.

I've always enjoyed good descriptive prose and a wide variety of poets but came quite late to writing my own poetry. I find that sometimes, when the germ of a poem starts to form, it helps me to write the 'story' in the form of poetic prose before working it into a more poetic form.

It's Not Me

That face in the mirror,
It’s not me.
The person that comes each morning
To look out at the real world,
I see there’s a likeness:
The greying hair,
The wry smile,
The night-sleepy eyes;
But it’s not me.
