Granpaw's Poetry

Welcome to Granpaw's Poetry. Here you can find most of the poems that I’ve written during the past few years.

In years gone by I wrote an occasional piece here and there, but not very much and mostly lost now. Five Peaks Challenge is the only one remaining from before March 2010. That date is important because during the spring of 2010 I was spending a lot of time in the Outer Hebrides. I bought Stephen Fry's book on how to write poetry - The Ode Less Travelled. I started experimenting with different types of verse, and the result is what you see here.

In general, the poems have been written for my own entertainment, but if you can enjoy them too then that is a bonus.
