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

From this side of truth
Lies fall twisted at the gate
Sweet cradle songs
Wayward mothers sang to soothe
Now blistered upon their tongues.

Four square and high
All sides come tumbling down
Truth is but a broken ship
Floundering upon some distant shore.
