Dannie Abse 1923–2014
Welsh-born doctor and poet 

  1. Are all men in disguise except those crying?
    ‘Encounter at a greyhound bus station’ (1986)
  2. I know the colour rose, and it is lovely,
    But not when it ripens in a tumour;
    And healing greens, leaves and grass, so springlike,
    In limbs that fester are not springlike.
     
    ‘Pathology of Colours’ (1968)
