    Brilliant Poetry
    A poetry book I would like highly recommend to all you poetry lovers.  Alan takes his readers on a journey from his opening poem all the way towards to the end of his book . He has a brilliant way  of writing to  hold your attention word by word , line by line, towards the ending line and to leave you with pondering thoughts  afterwards.  Sometimes  when I buy a poetry book there might be some poems I don't fancy. Well with Alan's book it's the opposite, I do like  all  the poems and a lot. Oh, and  believe me  you don't have to be old yourself "as the hills" to enjoy his book, as he states on the back cover , with wry observations, moods swings and notes of joy.

The Olding Man Still Going Wrong

He is old as the hills. He is fanatically bent
although his world’s gone queer.
Though becoming an ancient who some might think wise
his failure is crystal clear.

His doctor has retired and his priest has expired.
They have gone to Who knows where.
He spends his long mornings on diets and prayer
and his afternoons on beer.

His grandchildren helped him creep out for some sun.
He found their attention dear.
They left him outside and the winter was long
but it’s spring and he’s still here. ×
