Gyles' poem this week was 'This Boy' by Leigh Lawson, who wrote it upon the birth of his first grandson, Solomon.

 He gives me joy, this boy, 

Unspeakable, inexpressible. 

This boy gives me joy.

Inexplicable, unexplainable.

This boy brings me joy.

Let bells ring, choirs sing, 

Chimes chime, poets rhyme, 

Trumpets trump, drums drum, 

Feet stamp, guitars strum.

Higher than the moon,

Oh, hotter than the sun,

Deeper than the sea, 

Is the joy this boy brings to me.
