Lyrics and Poems

As fans among each other, you and I know that all Plum's work is sheer poetry—oftentimes he so far forgot himself to actually start rhyming off-stage, in a novel. All the official poetry has been playing hard-to-get. But, finally, much material has been making its appearance on the web—mostly, complete with dates.

For now, I consider it sheer fetishism to give you all titles I have found; it might well take more time to discover all those than Plum needed to write them. I'll keep you posted, however, on where to find his poems and all that, while I digest the information.
Oh, Joy!

You can read a lot of the Plum Poems
at what Hugh O'Connor modestly describes as
"a little website"

Here are some extremely fine copies of
old wax cylinders
