Eight Rivers A Tributary of Words

£9.99

Product description

A very good clean copy with no markings or annotations and no damage to the cover This copy is signed by the Poet

"Eight Rivers", a book of forty poems and verse libre, is an appreciation of the traditional ways and harmony to be found in the West Country...its open moorland, natural phenomena and topical situations are described with an underlying rhythmic clarity. There is a variety of snapshots covering Exmoor and Dartmoor...a hop to Lundy Island, across to the Severn Bore, Stonehenge and onto Cornwall. This anthology just asks to be picked-up and held and it does not disappoint. The cover depicting the Clapper Bridge over the North Teign River on Dartmoor is from a water colour by a distinguished local artist...a taste of things to come and there is a delightful surprise, the poem Winsford Hill has been set to music by local composers. The score is found in the back of the book, a haunting melody which lingers long after it is heard. Look out for Mr Fox who also makes an appearance...a little gem.
