[In] reading Mike Sullivan’s parting words ‘Some parting shots from Mike’ in The Herald, I felt a bit sad on knowing how much he put into his poetry, without any real reward for all his efforts in his field of expertise.

Perhaps the best reward for a poet is his or her satisfaction and enjoyment they get out of writing poetry without too much emphasis on financial reward. Great wartime poets were driven to write poetry because of their deep sorrow at what they have witnessed in the trenches.

A spur to good writing has no finer point than to have experienced that particular part of drama in their life, and express this in all its meaning, deeply thought out. It really is its own reward.
