Poems for Young and Old

Poems for Young and Old


This collection of poems is engaging, amusing and sometimes downright hilarious. An occasional dip into nonsense provides a wonderful distraction from everyday worries!

I wrote this book
So you could look
To see what I had written,
And that in a while
You would smile
And with its characters you’d be smitten.

About the Author

David Farren was born in Ledbury, Herefordshire. He was the second of five children who grew up in Blackheath in London. David later settled in Kent with his wife and family. His earlier career was in Financial Services. He subsequently moved into supporting people with learning disabilities which, although less lucrative, he found personally more rewarding. With three children and six grandchildren, David draws inspiration for his poems from his observations of children’s imaginations and other aspects of family life.
