Today's Poem

As I mentioned last week, my Ringing Redstarts is today's poem over at Poetry Daily. It's from Troy Town, which is available now direct from Arrowhead Press, or by e-mailing me using the link on the right. If you would like to buy a copy from me, I'll also include a free copy of my HappenStance chapbook, Making The Most Of The Light.

A beautiful poem! My poem about Black Redstarts is called "Static," for obvious reasons that were probably on your mind when you wrote your poem.

I have a copy of your book already but have not had time to read it yet. But "Ringing Redstarts" really makes me look forward to it!

Thanks very much, Andrew. Black Redstarts are big favourites of mine - they're pretty rare over here, but one showed up on the waste ground across the road during migration in April.
