William Willis Poems



Hi there,

I am 52 years old and was born just outside Glasgow.I left school at 16 and was employed as gas and welding equipment repairer for 5 years and then left to work in a local foundry.The hours were long and the conditions were dirty,hot and noisy. The work was hard. I worked in a dept. called The Casting Bay(where tons of molten metal was poured daily into sand moulds.) I left just before the work closed it doors forever in 2003. I am now employed in a the public sector.I have a 23 year old daughter who, to my amazement actually wrote a poem at school and this poem was published in a book of children's poems.She was only 11 at the time.I have a lot to live up to.

I also have a much younger daughter of 2 years old Julia, who has given me such an amazing lease and zest for life again

My favourite poet is ROY DOUGLAS KNEALE who writes on this site.

HE IS ABSOLUTELY DIFFERENT CLASS !

I Hope you enjoy my stuff and Roy's, feel free to comment.

My personal e mail.
