The Antique Poet is the pen-name/tagline that I used when I first began to publish my poetry. At some point, and I am not sure when, it evolved into a pseudo publishing/promoting name for my own name of Richard Nurse.
With the development of my new publishing name of NursesnookandBooks, a name that I have always felt quite fitting considering my last name. I am now reserving the name "The Antique Poet" followed by my own name once again for poetry.
I have written poetry for more years than I care to admit. Some I have published, and some I have merely written as a form of therapy. The poetry that will be published under the name "The Antique Poet" will be for reading by the general public, and without any age limitations established by the author. My poetry can run from silly and simple, to deeply emotional, and retrospective. On occasion, it can also be erotic, and those you will find under the pen-name of D. D. Story, and a different publisher.
