Sheena is in my view one of the truly outstanding poets on Poem Hunter. The depth of her emotions and the power of her language constantly startle me. A great poet for the Granite City.

Hi Sheena, We produce the local village newsletter for Portknockie, 'The K'nocker', and have reproduced many Doric poems in our editions. Unfortunately, our resident poet, Ian Mair, has just passed away, and we wondered if you would allow us to reproduce some of your poems. The one I'm looking at right now is 'The Check-Oot Quine's Lament.' Great poem! !
