Full synopsis

Should I Wear Floral and other Poems takes a humorous peek at on life, love and leaving during many changes in society over the last twenty-five years, while also celebrating landmark events in Britain. The poems are a reaction to observations, eavesdropping and experience while several originate with news stories and memorable events such as the deaths of Princess Diana, the Queen Mother and Spike Milligan. Included are more personal fun verses written for family birthdays, weddings, and funerals and adapted for this book. Learn about the ‘Look Down Generation’, the ‘Boomerang Generation’, being 60, singing in a choir, giving up smoking, and those annoying people who are Always There. Two parodies on Gilbert and Sullivan might even get you singing! The work by illustrator Denise Horn, has been likened in reviews to that of EH Sheppard of the A A Milne books and her hilarious, laugh-out-loud illustrations again capture the essence of every poem. Included is a collection of poems with a Swanage theme which aims to celebrate the home town of both author and illustrator. From the irritations of mobile phones, holiday air flights, weight gain, the ageing process and stages of life to the joys of love and marriage, the quirks of retirement and sadness of separation and loss, these poems open a window on many familiar situations everyone will recognise.
