My father, Charles Ingram Knowles, was born on 8 October 1900, at Huyton near Liverpool. He died, aged 100, on 18 June 2001 at Farnham in Surrey.
He came from a generation which learnt poems by heart. Even in the last few years of his life, when he could hardly hear and was nearly blind, he could still remember some of his favourite poems, and quote them by heart.
Some years before he died he wrote down a list of his favourite poems. Many are well known, some not so well known. I will post one poem here a week, every Sunday.
This blog is now complete. Over the past year I have posted 74 poems. The last poem was posted on 12 June 2016.
