Joan Aiken

A Joan Aiken poem… giving thanks


…for light in darkness, and inspiration in simple things


“We’re on Tom Tiddler’s Ground, picking up gold and silver” comes from an old children’s game – they run and help themselves to riches left lying unattended…


Joan’s poems can be found in a collection called The Skin Spinners
