My father was a working man who wrote poems for many years. The context of these, though often introspective, are concerned with his take on life and the activities of people, and his view of his home country as an exile. He died last year and I thought it fitting, as a mark of respect, and also because I enjoy his poems, that others should have the chance to share them. more »

Best Poem of Robert Wylie

If The Memory

If the memory I have of you
Were small enough to fill a thimble
I would fill a thimble,
And keep it in my sight.

But, since the memory I have of you
Is battle-size, I will fill a field
Big enough for armies, and
Listen to their noise.

Should the memory I have of you
Diminish, then, through all my years,
I will find, again, the thimble,
And keep it filled within my sight.
