INFORMATION
Yep. I'm old, impatient and pretty well set in my ways. I love traditional poetry which rhymes and has a distinct and constant metre. I was raised on a diet of Kipling and Coleridge, Masefield and Browning and sundry other poets of the old school. I recognise that Free Verse is preferred as a medium by some poets but not for me. If you like old fashioned, I'm your man.
