Biography of Douglas McClarty
Born In Northern Ireland. I live near the beautiful Causeway Coast. On a clear Day I can see the Scottish Islands, Isla, Mull, both my parents where born in Scotland, met and married in Northern Ireland. They had eleven children, six girls and five boys. I used to write poems when I was a primary school and now at the age of 65 I decided to exercise the brain cells and decided to write poetry. Most of my poems are about life's experiences.

Outside our house in drumard Drive
Sandy, s horse stands tired and still
The five shilling coal bag is heaved aloft
As he shuffles towards our empty shed
Tonight we, ll feel the glow of heat
Before we, re put upstairs to sleep.
The window panes are white with frost
Our breath like woodbine without the smell
