Poems by Roger Stevens
A few years ago Michael and I wrote a whole load of poems based around nursery rhymes. Originally they were written using collage techniques. But we refined a few for a book to be called The Owl Ate the Pussycat which Michael illustrated. I'll be posting a few over the next few weeks.
The poetry is par excellence but the artwork rather poor. Of course should you tell Michael this, I will deny having said it!
Are you being amusing? Michael will read ths and be upset. You will upset him. He's a very sensitive soul you know. I think the artwork is rather splendid.
C.J. is absolutely right - this is one of my worst drawings ever - I must have been pissed when I did it! ( he says choking back the tears ).
Nay, neeay, and thrice times neeeaiiiyyy!!!
I think you should give Matthew Holter a credit for this poem. It was he who, as a child, thought those first few lines were the actual words to the song Lord of the Dance - and he had a very interesting story about visiting relatives who were nuns to explain it.
Okay, alright. The truth is am envious as I wish I could draw with such skill. I really like the way the cushions form mirrored 'U's'!
Yes. That is indeed where the poem came from.
it was actually jon fieldhouse. although mat did say some funny things.
Who are you freshkidturnedrotten? Give us a clue. Because you may be right. Jon's mum thinks it was Jon and not Matt.
