‘You will hear
the curlew's song and it will wake something.
It will be a sort of beginning’
Today’s #keepcalmandreadpoems offering is a reminder to find the green around us in this beautiful poem 'Garden' by Linda Anderson from her newly released collection The Station Before. Although written long before lockdown the image of living ‘inside a parenthesis’ seemed like the perfect description for our current state. Let’s enjoy the ‘raggedness’ of any nearby blossom or urban scrap of green and the ‘multiple silences’ of a single bloom.
