They are written by his brother, Bob Crew, who is a published poet who visited Roy regularly and observed him carefully throughout his long illness. They tell the story of Roys illness and ultimate survival and they are the kind of poems that Roy could not have written for himself because his condition was too severe and he had no apparent talent for poetry.Mind and Soul PoetryThis book of poetry provides us with a wide-ranging picture of mental health in the UK and the contribution that poetry can make to a better understanding of our mental condition and the reasons for it.About the AuthorBob Crew is a published author and poet whose others books - Sea Poems, Gurkhas at War and The Beheading & other True Stories - are currently in the bookstalls and on Amazon.Book ExtractKnitting PatternsUnpicking knittingin the woolly thinkingof the woven heartwith its crosswisethreads of emotionspun like cottonto make a complicatedwork of intricate thoughtthat is patterned and pokedby needles from the planetmind to clarify the pulsatingknowledge of this muscleof all muscles, rhythmicwith circulating bloodwith which to takeand to give heart,expressing hidden meaningthrough so much feelingwith stitches of plainand also of purl poetrydripping with lifebloodand best known to thosewho knit and to otherswho carefully un-knit.The Key In The LockThe locked mindcan only be unlockedby a very special keyfrom the world of imagerythat needs no commentaryor explanation to set thoughts free.The locked mind can only unwindand become gradually unblockedafter the key that was thrown awayhas been retrieved from yesterdaywhen imprisonment held sway.The effortless insertion of the keyin the lock will set minds freeas it opens them up to poetry.Dont throw the key away.
