Reg Griffiths lost his physical voice to MND nearly two years ago but he makes his voice heard through his poetry. We will shortly have a booklet of these poems entitled 'The Passionate Gardener' available to raise funds for the Branch.


Here is a taster about the Helenium 'Moerheim Beauty'


Moerheim BeautyMoerheim Beauty

Do I not love Helenium's daughter?

Yes, I adore her matchless grace:

Each year I confess my desire for her:

Every time I see her beautiful face.

And ere I pace life's measured mile

Twixt earth and sky through sweet garden land,

O, I'll seek little more than to pause awhile

As brocaded flowers need a green fingered hand.

My beloved 'Moerheim Beauty', when in prime colours dressed

You crown a velvet raised brown boss with bronze sumptuousness.
