As read by the author
From his books "Poems"
Sometimes it is good just to stop and enjoy a poem. This poem "Ship's Pilot" is read by the author himself.
A valuable piece about the nature of the pilot.
Every job has its highs and its lows and very occasionally something so extraordinary happens it is left indelibly stamped on your mind. One such event was the MSC Napoli – a 62,000 tonne container vessel ‘shipwrecked’ off the UK’s famous Jurassic Coast in 2007 after it got into difficulties in the English Channel.
