I follow up my blog of yesterday, remembering that outstanding poetic blogger, David Alexander King (DAK), with a further personal reminiscence of him.
DAK always had a great sense of both the profound and the ridiculous. He was a great teller of stories from his past and he loved the banter of everyday conversation.
In 2010 whilst holidaying together in Somerset, I (almost) managed to persuade a hapless passer-by to take a photograph of DAK and Yours Truly, Roland, masquerading as two distinguished-looking and mature Asian matrons in the grounds of Wells Cathedral.
If DAK had not been beaten to it by a certain workaday northern nature poet called Wordsworth, I know he would have penned something like the following lines to describe the scene . . .
Earth has not anything to show more fair:

A sight so touching in its majesty:
