|Synopsis||"I have derived much pleasure from crown green bowling and the players I have met and I hope they will enjoy reading these poems." These words, taken from the preface of Rolling Words, reflect a little of the background to Frank Buzzard's book which uniquely looks at the beauty, humour and glory of the game through poetry.
Frank fell in love with crown green bowls and, failing to find any books on the game in libraries and bookshops, decided to start writing about it and publish it himself. His resultant work comprises 53 poems - some of which have been published in The Times, Bowlers World magazine and an anthology of sporting verse.
Ranging in length from a few lines to two or three pages, including such titles as 'Waterloo', 'Burrows Wins' and 'David and Goliath', and with styles from limerick to biblical, all tastes of poetry are catered for.
