I have published four poetry collections entitled 'Idle Thoughts', 'Reflections', 'Poetry On Tap' and 'Cherry on Top'.  See http://gigipagano.wixsite.com/mysite for my latest poetry collection “Cherry on Top” and other publications.
My verses can be described as eclectic, that is to say they go from the sublime to the ridiculous but, I hope, always entertaining.

You have made the writing of nature and the elements - and related symbolism - your speciality, Rachel, and you do it superbly. This poem is no exception.

Very imaginative and original, Mark, loved it a lot.
Was Gavrilo Princip also in the queue waiting to buy that anarchist pamphlet "The Parish News"? 

Pick of the Day for me.

Cheers, Luigi.

I tried that dear Nicky but somehow, after a wash, some seemed to acquire a different shade of black.
I know how you feel about wearing odd  articles of wear. It can happen with shoes too. I have two black pairs which are almost identical...

Posted on Sun, 26 Apr 2020

I have ceased to be surprised by the quality of your poetry, Rachel, which never disappoints. What fascinates me is the regularity of your input. I'd like to know if you write them spontaneously, on the spot  so to speak, or whether you ponder on...

As Jenny said, you are definitely on a roll. Your description of the fascination that those walks around the Pembrokeshire coast engender clearly reveals your love of nature.
Congratulations on the cherries.

Just one tiny observation, if I may. You start with: 'a dipper', (Singular) then continue with 'little priests' (plural). I get the analogy but, even allowing for poetic license, shouldn't...

Another excellent poem that emphasises your artistry, Rachel.
I like the clever interpolation of the yew, with its connotations of death and renewal, into the legend.

My best wishes, Luigi x
