Had some time on my hands this afternoon and put together this quick palindrome about the darkness in old woods. Hope you like it.

Quite happy with this for a first attempt, though. Agony is freedom, And lodges fill spirits As darkness pulls light away, Longer no kindness can […]Read more "The Lodge Palindrome – a poem"
This is the last of these posts that I’m going to dedicate to my favourite bands for the time being. I’m going to move back to doing a particular piece of music each week.
