Hoard brings together poems from several years including wry and witty autobiographical glimpses from earlier life in New Zealand, alongside poems about wildlife, trees and the Jarrow March of 1936. Here's a taster of the rich treasures that await you in Hoard:
Flat Warming Party, 1958
It's usual to have guests from both sexes;
but so far I don't know any women -
apart from my professor's wife, of course,
and I don't think it's her kind of party.
Therefore I have invited seven men,
including my self-proclaimed 'fiancé'
(not my title for him) who by the end,
with any luck, won't be speaking to me.
From Hoard by Fleur Adcock, published by Bloodaxe Books.
