Through his passion for racing, Henry Birtles has found a style to capture the heartbeat and humour of the sport with no-nonsense poems in the way they used to be written -- to evoke without confusion, to reach and to remind, to resonate and to paint in words some of those moments and characters that have defined the sport of racing for many.

If you think poems should make you feel -- feel without complication or a need for interpretation -- Birtles is your man.  If you want to scratch your head and if poetry is something you believe shouldn’t rhyme and should linger in the shadows of highbrow academic limbo, then the Racing Poet is not for you.
