Colin Ian Jeffery is an established English poet and novelist with world-wide reputation, his books can be purchased from Amazon and all good bookshops. He was seven, a choirboy, when he became entranced by poetry after hearing the priest read the twenty-third psalm. The beauty of the words struck his soul like lightning, and his Muse began to sing. He then found poetry was being read on the BBC radio Home Service and would listen in awe and delight to such poets as Dylan Thomas, John Betjeman, and Ted Hughes.


Trigger Warning

We hear cries of children
Yet to be born
Descendants of our families
Calling out against global warming
Out of control and still rising.
Demanding why we failed them
Did not elect leaders of action
But politicians windy with words
Refusing to make hard decisions
That would have saved the world.
