About the Book

The poems in the first half of the book offer a personal insight into the author’s early life, influenced by tragedy and war. Growing up in a Welsh mining village during wartime, with regular German bombers flying overhead for Liverpool and father away in Burma, rationing, village school life and simple pleasures enjoyed despite austerity.
The author moves on to his early years of military service at the time of the Cold War.

The reflections on his life are balanced, in the second half of the book, by personal observations and concerns on modern life, concluding with poems on life during COVID-19 and Lockdown. Many poems conclude with a few lines of good advice.
