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.

Busy amongst cobbles
Hears country gossip
Long exchanges at cross-ways path
Wise water-wren of Skye
Up leads the old cow-road
