John tells us why he chose to write some of his poems in the Yorkshire dialect and what he hopes to achieve by doing this.
Some of my poetry in dialect,
For those who ask me why,
It’s because it’s disappearing.
And will vanish by and by.
And so for those following on.
With the hope they will discover,
How we worked and how we played,
And how we spoke to one another!
— John Davison
