A mysterious ‘Banksy of Poetry’ is doing his best to restore people’s faith in humanity up and down the country.
The talented writer has managed to win the hearts of hairdressers and barbers by dropping off anonymous love poems at their salons.
But no one knows who the hopeless romantic is – though his name is thought to be Mark Jones.
His poems have been found in Truro, Cornwall and Cardiff, and have Lancashire postmarks.
And it’s not too difficult to work out if the author, dubbed the ‘Banksy of Poetry’, is behind the handiwork.
Every note is handwritten in silver ink, on a black card, and ends with the phrase: ‘Keep your chin up, keep smiling.’
They are always signed off ‘M Jones’ or ‘Mark Jones’.
Anne Westgarth of Bridge Street Barbers in Truro said the shop has been discovering his notes every week for about six weeks.
She said: ‘It is just lovely. The poems are absolutely lovely. They are really well written, it is heart-warming, especially in the run up to Christmas.
‘It really makes our week, wondering what the poem is going to be. To take the time out of his day to do this is so nice.
‘The first time I got one I thought, ‘How odd’ and wondered if it was a customer but no one knew who it was.’
They have also been discovered at nearby Inkfish in Truro, as well as Yume in Cardiff.
