HARVESTER CORN STOOKS COW PASTURE etc., 1995

These five books, compiled in 1995, look at the way romantic
images of the countryside, and rural activities, have been used
in the advertising of bread and dairy based products. These
images, it could be argued, attempt to tap into a latent desire
held by many to return to the land, to a simpler way of life in
tune with nature.

FOUR ANGLO-SAXON POEMS, 2002/2008

Through Anglo-Saxon verse we ascend to the source of the English
language where words are rooted in things and full of meaning -
perhaps more so.

FOUR ANGLO-SAXON POEMS




poem I


A wood some trees
As well as these

A well a wood
As well they would

The wood as well
As the trees



poem II


On the brow of a clough
Sits a chough on a bough

Three brothers in the rough
Take turns at the plough

A boat on the lough
Is lost in a trough

And the sough of the wind
Is more than, more than enough


poem III


The wild wind wanders
Round the cold wintry wood

Wondering whether
It would waken the weather

Winding its windy fingers
Round an old wold world


poem IV

The field leaves its yield
To the breeze in the trees

And the hedge at the edge
Yields to the leaves

In the heart of that hedge
By the edge of the wood

A fledgling sings, concealed
As a herd in the field

Lifts its head
To a bird on the wing

That heard nothing
But could see everything
