When did you start writing poems?

When I was really quite young, when I was twelve, I enjoyed writing when I was at school. My handwriting was poor, my spelling was awful, I didn't punctuate very well so I didn't get very good marks, but I enjoyed writing and I did write the odd poem then. But I guess more effectively I began writing poems twenty-odd years after that in my thirties and I began to find things happening in schools that interested me and I found instead of writing stories I found that what I had to say turned into a little poem or verse.
