My father, my husband's father and my grandfather and his six brothers all fought in the First World War and luckily returned.  Also my husband's father did.   They all returned with battle scars, lost limbs etc. You can see photographs and hear my father talking about how it was here: - and Flower of the Eternal Sleep has had music composed for it for organ and choir.  You can hear it there also.

My poems are being moved to my new website.  Adobe flash is going out next year and thus, sadly, this website.  Flower of the Eternal Sleep has moved and many others too.  Make a note of this please.
