The Snail Castle

Novelist Clare Dudman and I have planned to meet for years, and yesterday we did. Hop to Hodmandod Land and enjoy! I went with the just-arrived poet and blogger Dave Bonta to Welshpool and Powis Castle. Click on the title to fly there.

More news when I get home--the iPad is not conducive to blogging.

  1. The link didn't work, or I'd have flown, as commanded!
    I am reading your book. Amazed, simply, though I have seen a number of these poems separately, they're a whole different thing when gathered together into a bouquet.
    Enjoy. I wish we were a stop on your circuit!

Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
