Notes

Hello,

i am new to your site and new to poetry. My name is john reid and i am studying creative writing at the university of cumbria. I am comfortable in all modes of writing other than poetry so tried to use football, a subject i am comfortable on, to numb the pain.

it worked and i have a poem here, after finding a suject matter close to heart that i would like your opinion on.

I am a blackburn rovers fan and as any rover will tell you Jack Walker still rests in my heart as a massive part of the club. this is the suject matter for my poem, any feedback will be gladly received
thank you
john
