No more the red rose

23 Mar


I post this once a year. It is another of my favourite ‘performance’ poems.

I wrote it quite a long time ago now, one March. How and why it was written, and who it was for, the circumstances and the relationship, are a long story.

It was only ever intended to be read aloud, so I have just linked the audio.

Regulars will know it well, but some new readers may not. I hope you enjoy.

    So much emotion in this. I adore it every time I listen.

    I hope you will not modify this, it is far too beautiful for revision. Let us have this lovely original Mr. D.

    Incredibly poignant, and so very true to life… you write beautifully. Your reading was just perfect. Would you ever consider recording erotic audio? Would love to discuss the possibilities in working with us.

      You are very kind. Somehow I can’t quite see myself doing that. But thank you.

    May I add my wish to those already expressed here that you don’t update your reading. Always wonderful to hear again 🙂
