David Palmer introduced me to a Welsh poem, the Gwawdodyn, that consists of four lines in the following syllable lengths9 – 9 – 10 – 9 

Lines 1, 2 and 4 all rhyme. Line 3 with itself. 

My beautiful mother-in-law, Joan, was so proud of her Welsh roots, so this poem honours her but above all, it is written for my amazing wife, Anita-Clare Field. I am so, so proud to be married to you. 

Love Of My Life

I met the love of my life on line, 

I felt loved, sexy and so sublime, 

Each virtue she hits; I love her to bits,

Our future looks rosy and divine.
