I was thrilled and delighted to gain Second Place in the latest Writelink poetry competition on the theme of 'Rivals'.
My poem is about the creatures on the Burges wallpaper at Knightshayes Court, a National Trust property near Tiverton.
I've been 'bumping along' for days with my dominant [left] arm in a sling following a fall on Skye - so this news really cheered me up. Incidentally, the form I used was the French Quatern. It was not a form I had tried before, but as many of you know, I love to experiment.
