Glass on the Chimney And Other Poems


This collection of contemporary poems is intended to expose what is extraordinary and sometimes luminous about the details of everyday life and family relations. There are poems about lawnmowers, children, gardens and shopping centres, but there are also poems about war and the threat of war hanging over the modern world. There are also poems which pay tribute to great writers of the past, whether in the form of elegies or in imitations of their forms.
