Biography of Ray Mather

Ray Mather trained as a teacher of English and Drama. Struggling to find poems that fulfilled his needs for stimulus aids in the classroom he began writing his own on reflecting his view of good and bad things about school life. Some of these poems got published in a School Anthology and this led to requests and commissions for further poems on a variety of themes for a variety of age groups. His poetry has been published in anthologies, encyclopedias and teaching and examination materials in most countries in the English-speaking world. Due to requests from students for more information about his poems that they were studying for assignments, he decided to create his own website. www.raymather.co.uk. Here can be found the school-based work as well as a range of other poetry and script work.

Fatic Conversation

And so we talked of this and that,
Of oven grease and cooking fat
And who spilt what upon the mat
And left that stain.

A clock tick-tocked behind the scenes;
You sewed and pressed your old blue jeans;
I wanted to stop this but hadn’t the means
Through too much pain.
