   Born in Oxford, he has worked as a woodman on Exmoor, a teacher in Italy and Iran, and in publishing. He now lives in France. The Day and Other Poems (2006) consists of short, highly wrought poems divided into four sections: the poet's experience as an Exmoor forester; a sequence set in the Sabine hills in central Italy; a theme of erotic friendship; and miscellany that mixes anecdote and satirical epigram with compacted memories of travel.
   His other publications: The Winter's Task, 1977. Virgil's Georgics, 1892. Selected Poems, 1986. Theocritus's Idylls, 1988. Lusus, 1999 (a collection of classical poems)
   Some of his poems: "After Haymaking," "The Alfred Jewel," "Derelict Landscape," "The Colonist," "Further on Down," "The Stream," "Sunrise."
