Mark Andrew Heathcote has followed his heart, allowing his poems to breathe with a spontaneous out pour, and then shape them into something ageless, beautiful, and mysterious. His work is a mixed combination of love songs, spirituality and nature. At times he enjoys combining the blurred lines between the three; blending them together, to become one.

Mark drew his inspiration for writing again after reading W. B. Yeats, Matthew Arnold and the self-published poems of William Blake; Songs of innocence. He  remembers having first read them 25 years ago. Since then, he has went on to read many other great modern day poets. Mark is proud of what he has managed to achieve with his poetry thus far and has developed a good following of friends and fellow poets online who appreciate his ongoing efforts to give them something hopefully memorable to read.


Mark resides in Greater Manchester in the United Kingdom. He is a father of five children, 3 boys and 2 girls  and is living with his current partner Elaine. His dream is to one day, be a self-employed author that can afford to buy his own home and to do some travelling.


5 out of 5 stars - yet somehow forgotten could easily be Mark Heathcote's calling card

Keen insight, and observation of all things important in life; yet somehow forgotten could easily be Mark Heathcote's calling card.

But I will say, that it is without question the intimacy one feels when reading his poems, where he shines most brightly. This poet's words are like coming home to find candles lit, and a table set for two.

In Perpetuity by Mark Andrew Heathcote is a unique, inspirational poetry book about life in its fullness. The book takes you on a poetic journey, ranging in various topics and stemming from the essence of inspiration.

The first thing that stood out to me in this book is the formatting. Simply wonderful! The formatting made the reading so easy to follow. It was as if the author has his poems written on silk. I can't pick out one particular poem that I enjoyed more than others because each one provides a measure of creation and inspiration. There are a few I thoroughly enjoyed. It's such a pleasure to read the writings of an obviously talented author with a gift for poetry. I would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys inspirational writings, stemming from the seed of poetry. An excellent, marvelous creation. Loved it! The author's gift is seen throughout the book.

5 out of 5 stars - “Irresistible poetry that will take your breath away!”

Angels wings of solace, the aroma of sweet-scented flowers, transcendent heavenly dreams, and magical Harvested Moons create the perfect reading getaway in Author Mark Andrew Heathcote’s book entitled, In Perpetuity. In this exquisite poetry composition, his classical touch is a fluent combination of peace and vision; inspiring a modest, calm, signature style that carries on throughout the entire book.

 Poems that capture the essence of this style, such as; Dreams, are not just lovely in appearance, but also informative! Dreams splendidly compares the delicacy, beauty, and development of a flower, to that of our precious dreams. There are also select poems that express a sincere love and reverence for God, and his spiritual beliefs seem to provide him a sense of confidence and security in knowing who he is and handling all of the things that life throws our way.
