Poems © Dick Bird
Dick Bird (1925-84), was born in Tottenham, London, England, and emigrated to New Zealand in July 1950. He worked for Railways Workshop, Woburn, Lower Hutt, and then moved to Auckland where he was married in 1951. He spent 33 of his 34 New Zealand years working for the Post Office and living in various areas of New Zealand with his wife and children. He published his poetry in a regular newspaper column for a regional (probably North Island) newspaper. His writings were posthumously published by his family as a memorial in 1984 after he died from cancer.
