Biography of pete Hall
Born in the NW of England, I have been an amateur poet for many years.
Much of my work is influenced by my childhood and the working class estates, I grew up in. However, I am widely travelled and include poetry about Iraq and Afghanistan. My main influences are Edward Thomas and Elisabeth Bishop and there are many themes of countryside and coast in my writing.

pete Hall Poems
Strained light illuminates a cell wall The candle of a saint. Not yet framed In the history of the English
White-washed Protestant crofts Leak heat. It leaches from chimneys By the flat stream, a dipper Busy amongst cobbles
Strained light illuminates a cell wall
The candle of a saint.
Not yet framed In the history of the English
The nave of the North East washes sin
Rollers from the German Sea.
Haul heavy Prayers onto winter beach.
A congregation waits
