Michael Edwards






I know that some will surely scoff

but there’s a poet to whom I doff

my flat tweed cap

 a sterling chap

the English poet Roger McGough.

    So do I Michael, fabulous poet whose poem 'The Railings' was the first I came across and it drew me to him, read many of them since.


    • Michael Edwards

      I've got several of his collections and love them all.

      Good write and pic M. You know McGough Berles? I'm being daft now!

      • Michael Edwards

        Just had lunch - time for a sleep and a Drib Berles.

      • dusk arising

        To smile at each mornings pun
        and give Van Gough a fair run
        theres a poet i read
        not quite the old Bede
        yep Michael Edward's the one.

        Hope i got the apostrophe right on that one.

        • Michael Edwards

          apostrophes okay by me
          Cheers muchly dusk.

          Brian here ~ GOOD MORNING UNCLE MICHEAL ! Roger McGough one of the best of the Liverpool Poets ! Last time I heard him ~ he told us all to get comfortable for one of his longer Poems ~

          When all is Said & Done
          Theres nothing more
          To be SAiD or DONE !

          Awesome best recited in a Posh Scouce Accent ~ Like to one we use for Wedding Toasts etc etc. Roger is good example of a performance Poet !

          Blessings & Peace to You & Yours

            He's come a long way since Lilly the Pink.
            IMHO the best of the Liverpool poets.
