The nephew of a North-east poet who passed away last year has published another volume of his works.

Doric poems by Bill Rennie - known as Auld Wullie - were published in ‘Peat Moss Poetry’ by his nephew Jack Davidson after he passed away in January 2013.

He has spent around six months completing the next volume after retiring earlier this year and while moving from Kingswells to West Lothian with his wife to be closer to his daughter.

Jack said: “It’s taken longer than I planned but that’s due to all the kerfuffle associated with cleaning out the loft, packing, moving and unpacking - but I’ve done it.”

Auld Wullie was born in Hardslacks Cottage, near Hatton before he moved to the Toll of Birness.

His nephew added: “He enjoyed poking fun at what was happening in the North-east.

“He was quite self-deprecating as many of his poems illustrate, he could sometimes get a bit annoyed if things didn’t go his way. He wrote about that experience, and many of his poems are reflective of that.”

Work has already started on the third and final volume of the book.

Peat Moss Poetry Volume 2 is out now in the Coffee Pot priced at £7.50 or you can post a cheque for £9 which covers post and packaging costs to: Jack Davidson, 14 Hillend View, Winchburgh, West Lothian, EH52 6WB.
