About me

Robyn for web

I began my life in Northumberland, a place still very dear to me. I have written poems for as long as I can remember – each one holds a story within it and, I hope, some music in the sound patterns of its words. Settings range from Northumberland, Scotland, Yorkshire and Sweden to the south of England, France, Italy, Romania, Australia, USA, and Japan. I have written about surviving in difficult circumstances, about love and loss, about change in the natural world and in particular places and societies.
