The Wednesday Poetry Corner With Keith Alan Watson

My good friend, Niamh Clune, has given me another shot at a spot on her Corner. This week I’m featuring the great William Blake. “The Everlasting Gospel” is a brave piece of work. Come! See how he effected me in my early days as a man who wished to write lyrics and poetry. Thank you, friends!

Returning to the tree today for the Wednesday Corner is Keith Alan Watson who is better known to us as Uncle Tree!

I’d like to thank Niamh for allowing me to share the spotlight with a man who taught me much, David Herbert Lawrence. I was 42 when D. H. and I first met up in the library. “Sons And Lovers” got us acquainted, and “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” kept us together for quite some time.
