Celebrate #YorkshireDay. Please join Peter Draper and I with your published/unpublished poetry/short prose/artworks about Yorkshire. Please include a short third person bio.

Yorkshire day

Fresh every day
This Riding landscape
Never changes

From here
The mile-wide Humber
Is a silver stitch

The moon
a bright button sewn on evenings
Blue velvet

And the wolds about us
Flowing and folded
Are waves
Breaking in geological time

Winter and summer
We walk the mile
To this companionable bench
And home

-Peter Draper


-Jane Dougherty

Bios and Links

-Peter Draper

lives in South Cave, at the foot of the wolds. A retired Professor of Nursing from Hull University, Peter still works part time as a minister in the local church. He is a keen cyclist and archer.
