William Davidson first began his study of poetry in the early nineties, fascinated by the variety of verse forms and techniques that lend themselves to poetic expression. As a member of Ramapough Poets of Rockland County, he found that this group of dedicated writers helped pave the way for his understanding and love of all things poetic. In Remnants of a Scottish Childhood-a unique collection of clear-sighted, genuine poems-Davidson uses a variety of forms, including a dash of Scottish dialect, which is where his natural inclinations and poetic sentiments dwell. His poems reflect his youthful memories growing up in Scotland. They are filled with love, fear, disillusionment, class distinction, and a sense of wonderment that the world apart from Scotland held a place in its heart for him-and they reflect the essence of the Davidson Clan motto: Sapienter Si Sincere-"Wisely If Sincerely."
