‘A Book of Water’

Wandering around the interwebs I stumbled on this. A new poem from one of my favourite contemporary poets:\’Book of Water\’ – Jacob Polley. What I particularly like about the best of Polley’s poems is that they live as well on the page as they do in the ear. I think this poem is a good example of this.

If you want to read the poem you’ve only to go here and check out the Guardian piece on the events that inspired it.

  1. I’m fairly new to his work, but I just featured Jacob Polley in my poem of the day series. He’s a wonderful, wonderful poet.
