My daughter became the real inspirationfor this collection.

In the 1960s she wanted to exchange verse, instead ofhaving me read a bedtime story to her. We went on to do this, off and on,for several years. Most of the verses in this collection were written later onaeroplanes and trains while travelling. They provide a commentary on life,sometimes wistful, sometimes amusing, sometimes irreverent, sometimescritical, sometimes educational, and sometimes imaginative and uncouth.The verses range from observations on the funny side of life to childhoodmemories, to railing against bureaucracies and man’s ethics and morality,to lauding extraordinary achievements, to fairy stories, and an attemptto explain nature’s major forces to young people!

Above all I hope thatreaders of this wild, chaotic, and mostly lighthearted collection, will findsomething amusing and of value.
