Ross Svend Dix-Peek Poems

I was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia in July 1970 and was brought up and educated in South Africa. My wife, Deanna, and I now reside in Swords, Dublin, Ireland. As a youth I was far more into reading, drawing and sports than writing. However,as I got older I realised that there was an intense need to express myself and so began writing. I came late to the wonderful world of poetry, and my poetry really began as an adjunct to my writing, but gradually it dawned on me that poetry was far more akin to my strengths, traits and quirks, and, of course, my innate love of words. My interests are Writing and Poetry, History and Military History, The English Language and the Etymology thereof, and Sport (notably Rugby and Cricket).
