A lifetime's selection of poems by retired newspaper journalist James Larkin

This is my first ever book. It is poems I have written throughout my life from the age of 13. I am old now (79) and hope to write a few books before I fall from my perch. It is only in these recent times that I got back the urge to write but what I really want to achieve is to have my poems published before I depart. To me Poetry is something special. It comes from the heart, our very soul. If nothing else, at least I will leave some poetic thoughts behind. Part of any proceeds I may make will go to animal welfare because I am totally against animal cruelty.
