Some poems of mine online


Students  often ask where they can find this or that poem online. Often as not, you can't; you'll have to go and find a book! But these are some I know about online as of July 2014. There are also several at my page in the Poetry Archive,  which is probably the best single place to try. And there are lots of contemporary poems by all manner of poets online at the Poetry Magazines website, but you have to hunt for them! Luckily there's a search facility.
