Poems by Andrew Hill

Poems in this section:


Here I go again. 1980. Totally engulfed by emotions when a picture book life, nice home in Surrey, pretty daughter and engaging career still weren’t enough.

For some reason I needed risk not conventional predictability and created an environment in which I could have an almost parallel existence in ‘The Newbury Office’. I may have secretly hoped for another ‘Janet’ but could never have expected the impact of Judy - a perfect match not only in her actual capabilities and in filling the cracks in my self-confidence but also to set alight passion that previously I would have merely watched enviously on television and never dreamt of actually experiencing.

Once again, I had to write it all down somehow.
