Our Times
by Roger Mumby-Croft

Compiled over many years, Our Times is a collection of poems that recount the experiences that Roger has had throughout his life. Roger Mumby-Croft fell in love with poetry aged 16 after being introduced to the poets of World War I, by his uncle who served in the trenches. He has since spent his time writing his own poetry.

COAST LIFE
I must return from whence I came to the sea,
and the sand and the sailing rain.
Where an iron grey sky hangs over an iron grey sea,
and my thoughts are alive with memories of she.
We walked along this desolate beach where driftwood abounds,
Where old shells are ground by the sea to new white sand.
The sound of the gulls and the distant roar of the sea seems to bring you close to me,
you are of the sea, alive and free,
so I must return from whence I came.

Our Times covers a variety of topics including, love, politics, family and pastoral life. From the everyday to the extraordinary, this is a thought-provoking collection that will appeal to anyone who enjoys poetry.

An inight and lyrical reflection on life

by Rowland


I enjoyed this eclectic collection of reflective poems very much. The writer's love of life , family and nature are portrayed with humour and thoughtfulness whilst his sadness at the futility and waste of war is equally evident.
I am sure it will strike a chord with many-do read it.
