Poems of time and place

I love history and imagining the past, and these poems hopefully reflect this. Many are about fortresses and castles (especially the early ones) probably because there is something fascinating about the way castles almost always outlive their makers and adapt and change through generations, while also retaining so much history and intrinsically symbolising resistance to change. This appeals to some deep sense of fatalistic romance (and irony) in me.

All my history  poems are here.
