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.

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"?

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...
