Vaughan Walker
Vaughan Williams Walker

My name is Vaughan Williams Walker. I'm a Designer of everything graphic and currently studying ecommerce in Limerick. I was born in the Rep of Ireland in a cottage amidst the hills of Wicklow, but have spent most my life on the rocks in the Burren. I've neglected writing but have put together a minimal collection of about 20 poems. Although I prefer to paint writing is something I return to now and again when emotions don't visualise.

Lets Not Test Kind Faith by Vaughan Williams Walker

I toke my cup full of hemlock for you,
not sure if it will me with the Gauls or not.
Just promise you'll forgive me.
I believe beauty never ages.

I toke my cup full of hemlock for you,
Indeed the apple doesnt fall far, my Snow White.
From the tree, all seven rolled into one.

And it is off to work I go, it is this I do not know...
What man does not love to love?
