Poetry came late to Hugo Steere. It was only in 2010 when approaching sixty that the inspiration to write his first took hold.
Captivated by the beauty of a young actress poems such as ' a tes beaux yeuxs ' became to basis of the book ' Better Not ' that was published in 2012.
Living in Devon provided a perfect tranquil enviroment for writing poetry. Over the preceding years sixty or so poems appeared mainly inspired about individuals.
I met in in Devon and London. Since moving to Corfu in 2017 Hugo has finally finished a second collection of poems which were started in 2012 and appears in chronological order over the subsequent years. The poems follow a familiar pattern of lives and events that have captured his imagination in Devon and Corfu. They finish with some Greek text. A language Hugo has increasingly became interested in.
