Publications (4): Poem of the Month - and others

A dram, used in the coalfields of South Wales
I was surprised and delighted last night to receive an email, informing me that my poem, 'Elegy for Idris Davies', has been voted Poem of the Month by Anne Stewart on the SecondLightLive web page. This poem was published by Peter Thabit Jones in The Seventh Quarry. You can read it here.

More locally, three of my poems have just appeared in our Poetry Group's Christmas anthology, 'Tuesday Poetry', produced by Jean Salkilld. My poems are about (1) Christmas, (2) the rose-red city of Petra and (3) winter at the Westonbirt Arboretum.

Very much liked your Idris Davies poem, Caroline. I discovered the work of Idris Davies a few years ago, and it was a revelation.

Caroline Gill said...

Thank you, Robert, for your kind comment. Yes, Idris Davies has much to offer ... I wrote the poem after an afternoon in Rhymney.
