Tribute to A. E. Housman

{Sparked off by a reading of Charles Causley’s ‘I Am the Song’.}

blue hills

I am a puzzle, e’en to myself;
My thoughts, they tend to wander
To Shropshire’s hills,
all blue like Smurfs;
to A. E. Housman –

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
