Inspired by time at Ruskin’s former home of Brantwood, on Lake Coniston, this is a touching and warm collection. Colkitto reflects on the small things that nevertheless move each of us deeply. These poems, made in the moment of inspiration and with the minimum of later editing, capture an essence of place and time that are, ultimately, timeless and universal.
In this his latest collection, Colkitto’s finely crafted poems capture, and distil, the essence of place and of memory.
… George Colkitto’s poetry brims with life in all its colours and all its contradictions.
