During the years I lived alongside Avatar’s Abode, mid 70’s onwards, I had occasion among my activities relating to production of plays, theatrical events etc. etc, to read many of Francis’ poems to an audience, quite often at his request; here is one poem he wrote for me to recite and which to my knowledge has never seen the light of day, you will note that it is in Francis’ handwriting; (OVER) refers to another poem he asked me to read for him but has been published, and was on the reverse of this hand written sheet.
