Sonia, such an interesting find of a poet! How did you come across him? I don't think I've heard of him before :oops:
me neither. For this special collection, I simply browse through the poetry books in archive, sort of randomly. I always find it interesting what I come up with. Usually poems and poets I otherwise may never have known or read. So it was pure coincidence that I stumbled on this one. "The convict's appeal" sounds interesting.

my second for this month, I liked this poem very much. I dedicate it to all those who enjoy a quiet life far away from the madding crowd:

and my last one for January. Bitter-sweet

"The cliff tops" by Annette F. C. Knight (????-????) (sorry, I did not find anything about this author, where I could be sure it was really her. But the book was from 1874, so I'm fairly sure she is PD for me to record)

Hi Rapunzelina,

I've been intending to do this for months but didn't have a free slot - until now! Thanks again. I'm finding all sorts of goodies this month to record.
