An Affair To Remember Blog Hop and Giveaway

Very talented writer and fellow Scribophile Aubrey Wynne recently interviewed me for her blog. She has a copy of her own lovely story ‘Merry Christmas, Henry’ to give away in a draw (or a copy of Silvana – but I’m hoping all my blog followers have already bought theirs….)

A beautiful poem, sent to me, inspired by Silvana


(For Belinda, after reading Silvana: The Greening)


Some anthem

deep within the mystic groves of sleep,

echoes through the slumbering wildwood

and trembling among the fallen leaves,



Some song,

risen from the valleys of the heart,

soothes itself against a memory,

then plucking at the chords of thought,



Some music,

carried on the sleeping wings of night,

deep inside the silence of the soul,

lingers until morning, then



Then dreams,

tuned from the broken lyre of hope,

creep through the being, clutching at the mind,

and toll the ancient silver bell of love,

till all the sleepers wake,

and find their peace.



I am both thrilled and humbled by this. Thank you x
