Praise for ‘Persephone’

043

Persephone is my second book of poems. It is available from my publisher Lapwing or please send an email to enquire.

where the sun lies,

a tractor’s twin spotlights

roaming the fading field,

bringing home a harvest

waylaid by the sun’s recalcitrance.

The Earth is turning

its back on the sun:

we know we have lost her…
