Please accept my apologies for the recent difficulties that the site has experienced and the loss of some links and images. I am doing my best to resolve these issues, but I am just one person using my spare time to keep this site running for you, so please bear with me.

Ultimately, time allowing, I hope to have a more complete, improved site by the end of 2015, so PLEASE BEAR WITH ME.

In the meantime, if there is a particular page, topic or poem that you have lost access to and need, please email me at and I shall be happy to prioritise that part of the site and email you when it's ready for full use again.

Many thanks to all of those who have encouraged me to continue building this site over the past 4 or 5 years. I promise to persevere.
