WINNING WORDS

On June 7 is published 'Winning Words: Inspiring Poems for Everyday Life'.  Those of you who know me will know that I have been working as William Sieghart's 'adviser' (his word!) on this project for over a year.  Most of the fruit of my labours is to be found at a website, here, but this book is a quite separate off-shoot, and altogether worth the purchase (a mere £4.31 on Amazon).  For those who failed to get tickets for the Olympics, this will more than make up for your disappointment.  So, go on, tickle the citterne with your quill, and buy a copy.

Late Fragment

And did you get what
you wanted from this life, even so?
I did.
And what did you want?
To call myself beloved, to feel myself
beloved on the earth.



Raymond Carver
