The Twilight Dragon

This is one of my favourite poems from Me and my Alien Friend.

It’s about a golden twilight, end of the day feeling…personified as a dragon!

I hope it has a subtle sense of happy loneliness…

It’s quite a favourite at my performances- I often play it late on in the performance after the bouncy all-join-in ones.

This version was recorded for The East Sussex Children’s book Award online celebration.

Cat poem! My Walk To School Friends

I’ve just added lots of videos I’ve been making over Lockdown to my youtube channel. I made this film of ‘My Walk To School Friends’ for my local library service, as part of the online East Sussex Children’s Book Awards Ceremony. The poem is from my book Me and My Alien Friend.

The Library Glow

I wrote the poem The Library Glow a while ago to celebrate my local library, which was recently closed down.

I also wanted to write about the melancholy loveliness of an ordinary, rainy, grey evening in Ore Village.
