About the poet
Sophie Hannah is a poet and crime fiction writer. Her crime fiction frequently appears on...
I came this little seaside town
And went a pub they call The Crown
Where straight away I happened see
A man who seemed quite partial me.
I proved susceptible his charms
And fell right in his open arms.
From time time, every now and then,
I hope meet up with him again.
