Ralph's poetry deliberately and unrepentantly avoids the gentle tradition and the modern vers libre (free verse) so favoured by today's contemporary poets. There is nothing elusive or difficult in Ralph's verse, just poetry written by a man with a passion to share his pleasure. From his first poem recalling 'A 1950s Boyhood' in the carless, coal-sooted, cobbled streets of Leeds to his final witty parody of 1930s detective fiction ('What A Dick!'), Ralph sets out to entertain and amuse. 'Poetry to Charm an Hour of Leisure' does exactly what it says on the tin and is an ideal read for those seeking something different from their poetry. As Ralph tells us in his well delivered introduction, 'My book is not intended as caviar to the generals, but beans on toast to the troops.' So, if you like beans on toast... Ralph has committed to donate any profits from his book to St. Gemma's Hospice in Leeds, in memory of his great friend Ian Carver.
