Fireside odes and verses that speak of love, longing and loss applied with a filigree touch

-April Manderson


Flitting sparrows flock in silent silhouette

And practice their calligraphy

Perched on the evening


In this beautifully concise debut, Manchester poet John Clifford pays tribute to love, connection and human passion in the world at large. Drawing on the beauty and chaos of nature with the lilting cadence of the Romantic era, these verses are stuffed with compassion and a soft appreciation for all that has been loved, all that has been lost and all that was subsequently found.
