ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hope Bagot Poet Laureate

VIEW ALL ARTICLES BY THIS AUTHOR

In the heart of a towering ash

silhouetted against the watery winter light

she stands forlorn and

creaks and groans her wooden shackles tight

rusting but wanting to galvanise

and bring that sparkling flow

not be condemned to gaze

at the sheep that graze

beneath her scelerotic vanes.
