Profile I`m a published poet - two collections, some print magazines, some poetry websites. I enjoy both formal and free verse. In my own work I generally avoid rhyme, because I`m not very good at it, but if you can rhyme, I`ll be full of admiration! Before joining WW I was a member of other internet poetry groups, and have always enjoyed reading and commenting on other people`s work. Any comments will always be constructive.

    Another poem on a historical theme. Again I hope the history comes across. I know there isnt much in the way of fine poetic lines, its rather prosaic, but I hope the overall impression is of something genuinely poetic. As always, feel free to criticise, or ask questions.

    Whether you liked them or not, youve had Hypatia of Alexandria and the Peasants Revolt. Now another poem on a historical theme. I hope its at least clear. Its a long way from perfect, though, and I welcome your criticisms and suggestions. James.

    There's a very serious, true story behind this poem. See below. (I've added a 'companion' poem, which tries to make a point of sorts.)
