PICTURED: The poetry written by Lance Corporal Frank Kenyon<br />
<br />
A poignant poem written by a British prisoner of war pining for the baby daughter he had never met has come to light 75 years later.<br />
<br />
Lance Corporal Frank Kenyon treasured a black and white photo of his newborn daughter June that his wife Doris sent to him while he languished in a German prison camp.<br />
<br />
It inspired him to turn to poetry to cope with being parted from his family during the two-and-a-half years he was a PoW for.
