for edwin morgan - one thousand flowers
Updated: Jun 22, 2020
Edwin Morgan is the first poet whose name I remembered. In the Snack Bar taught me alliteration and how to notice. So it's a real pleasure to be in this anthology celebrating the centenary of his birth. My sonnet One Thousand Flowers was inspired by Morgan's One Cigarette and a magical page from one of his collage scrapbooks which featured a paperweight.
