Lancashire Dialect Poetry

I have a copy of the book Lancashire Evergreens, edited by Joan Pomfret. Joan was a Gt Harwood lady, and a wonderful poet and writer in dialect and standard English. This book is an anthology of the best poems by our top writers. This book has a previous owner's signature inside it - M Pilkington. If we have any member of that name, I will be pleased to let him/her have this book for free. -delivered to Acc. I may not be able to respond for a few days

Well, that is my name(or certainly the Pilkington and the initial)...but I am pretty sure it has never been one that I have owned.
Bob, I do like poetry and I have a few dialect books. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but if any other member wants this book, then please let them have it.

I am trying to downsize my own book collection - but having little success......and if himself thinks I have homed another stray, I will get my hands slapped.

Hello and welcome to Howling Dog...
...my little place on the internet where you're most welcome to pull up a chair, make yourself comfortable and have a good old nosey around. I'll put the kettle on and get the chocolate biscuits!

I think his one of his best is 'Northern Bye-Bye Blues (You're a boring ****** Brenda) from the Rhythms and Rhymes CD.

You'll be sad to hear that Steve passed away quite suddenly on the 9th February 2020, I went to his funeral last Friday at Charnock Richard Crematorium

I was surprised by how well known he was in Lancashire. There was a piece on Radio Lancashire about him:

They played part of the Boring Brenda monologue....
