In Memoriam – D.A.K. #2

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:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty: 

 I publish the resulting photograph below . . .

OK, I own up, the above photographic study was photoshopped by me from 3 of my own photographs, all taken on the same day in 2010 in the grounds of Wells Cathedral, Somerset..
