Maureen Cullen poetry on Amaryllis Poetry blog


My dear friend, poet and short story writer, Maureen Cullen has another of her poems – Strawberry Tarts and Swan Vestas – published today, this time on the Amaryllis Poetry website.

Maureen is a Scot, so there’s a smattering of Scots dialect words. If you’re a sassenach like me, you may not understand all of the words but you’ll get the gist. And truly, her voice is one of the many joys of her work.

Just sit back, read and let her imagery take you away to Clydeside to smell the pipe smoke and taste those strawberries.
