About Dyson McIllwain

My name is Dyson Douglas McIllwain, a Scot with a fancy for the written word. I had maintained a journal for a few years and have made an effort to rework them into several forms. However, my passions wax poetic.  Robert Burns inspires and I strive to honour him through my works of reasonable rhyme.

I admire footballers, although I am well past my prime to have played worth a damn. Cinema and stage plays entertain, but a good book of classic poetry sustains.

I look forward to resurrecting my sad and sorry muse for the betterment of humanity, and falling short of that, to charm e’ery last Bonnie Lassie to within an millimeter of breathlessness.

  1. As I implied … no, outright STATED at Poetic Asides … your seemingly endless flow of quality poetry is quite impressive. I’m glad I came out here to visit to see who you are.

    Buffalo poet and 2010 P.A. Poet Laureate Walter Wojtank and I share a blog entitled Poetic Bloomings. Here is a bit about our site: http://poeticbloomings.blogspot.com/2011/04/welcome-to-poetic-bloomings.html . We’d be honored to have you join us whenever the fancy strikes. We offer a new prompt each Sunday morning.

    Best to you,
    Marie Elena

    1. Ms. Elena, Thanks you for your humbling testimonial. Apparently, you are more impressed with my poetry than am I. But I appreciate your opinion, and it is heartening to know I still have a way of connecting with my readership. What I am impressed with, is your aforementioned site. I will mull the invitation and may take your offer to heart.
      Good of you to visit.
