I don’t get much time to read poetry at the moment (well for the last 6 years really!) but whilst bouncing my #3 baby George to sleep in hammock for his naps rather than just sit there I have been pulling out some poetry and rereading it. I just read Maria Macmillan‘s Rope Walk again, and I love it so much, everything about it (it is a beautiful object to hold). I bought it after hearing Maria read from it last year on Poetry Day in Unity Books. Now I will have to re-read Tree Space too! Have just been re-reading Marty Smith‘s Horse with Hat also.
