This is the first ‘formally’ published work by Carole Harcourt-Smith; a small selection of Poems from hundreds, perhaps even thousands that can be found, sometimes on the tiniest scraps of paper, tucked away behind cushions and under table-mats. Carole has previously had ‘England’s Rose’ a dedication to Princess Diana, printed locally, and a favourite of many ‘A Time to Reminisce’ is reproduced at the end of this book.

Hopes, Dreams and Memories (along with many other poems and prose to come) is inspired from being born into a wonderfully loving and caring family, parents who instilled love, respect and trust, and treasured memories and special joys of being one of a family of 9 children. It also reflects the immense joys and sorrows that can result through and from the wonders of the creation of life, with children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren enriching her life; reflected in poems such as ‘Madame’, ‘Keith’ and ‘Emma (In the Park)’. Fostering children and caring for the elderly have also played a large part in Carole’s life, generating poems such as ‘Fostered with Love’, ‘In Slumber’, ‘First Christmas’ and ‘For You’.

The front cover is from an autumn photograph snapped by one of her brothers ‘Smudge’ close to where he lives; with CAZ, her childhood nickname aptly (if the term may me allowed for just this case) graffiti’d across the tree’s trunk. The poems are brought about by great memories of all she holds dear; of those gone before, and those still in her life, including family, extended family and many friends throughout the world.
