The Poet

David is happily married and a loving father and grandfather. He has been writing poetry ever since he was a child.


David's poetry encompasses a wide variety of topics, from personal experiences about loved ones to war and conflict, from casual happenings to historical events, from life in Yorkshire to life in Provence. Starting off as passionate scribblings, coated in a raw honesty, a happy reminder of his previous career as a lawyer, they quickly become important milestones of life as we know it.


Words have never touched so deeply, cut so cleanly or brought such tears of joy as those often expressed in David's poetry. This is certainly in part thanks to his ever supportive muse to whom he has been wed for many a decade and counting.
