Throughout my life I have loved, been entertained, educated and bamboozled by poetry. It is a strange and wondrous and cryptic and penetrating thing. So, here are 10 favourite poets (there are others) that have influenced me as a writer, a thinker and a human being. I urge you to seek out their work. And this list is in no particular order of merit.

Roger McGough
Leonard Cohen
William Wordsworth
Damian Smyth
Edward Lear
Ogden Nash
Seamus Heaney
Paul Muldoon
Wendy Cope
Spike Milligan

Please look them up.
