My name is David Agnew and I write poetry.
That seems more real than saying I am a poet.
What I really think I am is a story teller – it just happens that the stories emerge in poetic form
And I know that poetry allows me to say things and express feelings that I am not able to say using prose.
My poems have appeared in –
Patterns of Hope
Public Places –
Walls of waiting rooms in Leeds hospitals
Nostell Priory Poetry Trail
And I understand my poem “Barney the Parrot” has been used as an example in a workshop on writing about animals
There will be some words to go in here later on
