150+ essays on literary topics


Poems, I think, are best read singly. One of the most successful poetry publishing projects in my lifetime was Poems on the Underground. Just one short poem to read on your journey and remember during your day. This page aims to be like that, one poem at a time, each taking the place of the one before, like stops on the Underground.

Anon is actually by me. I wanted to try to write a verse that could be taken for something by that well known and much anthologised poet, Anon.


Let every man his own rope make
Made like a man of many a strand
So every man his rope may take
Either to climb or to be hanged.

Next stop on the poetry line
Lost in the Crowd

Previous stops

No Choirs of Angels
Winter Songs
Once A Mariner
This River
