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.

From the good play on words

How could he bugger oop North! You were well rid of him, pet. A superb description of a rotten situation in every sense, Bee. The 'ciliege' are well deserved.

Best, Luigi.

Dear Bee, as I was writing

Posted on Fri, 18 Jul 2014

Dear Bee, as I was writing this I was sure that it would make you smile. If only I could be so sure in choosing the winning lottery numbers! You are so good at reading between the lines and I appreciate your uplifting remarks. I too am a fan of...
