of twins and poetry

There's a photo feature on identical twins in the Guardian, with five pairs. Various sets of twins have played a strangely pivotal role in my life at different times, starting from secondary school days and persisting until today. Even my one godchild is a (non-identical) twin, I have always been fascinated by twins; perhaps it comes from having twin half-uncles, Edward and Andrew (above with their half-brother John).

They are poets to boot: here are two poems written for my mother Pen's poetry group in Glastonbury many years ago. Handwriting and illustration by her.
