Nigel Peake

As a child I used to draw a lot,
play cricket with my brothers, fill up school books
with homework of looped text and neat diagrams in ruled boxes,
and go for evening walks to meet my father coming
home from work. Twenty years on, I still draw,
make books, go for walks, and instead of playing
cricket I tend to listen to it on the radio.
The country is peaceful. It is a place to draw
and work and be surrounded by things
that we could never make.
