From the publisher

This is the first collection of her own poems by the noted translator Angela Livingstone. The subjects are, in her own words: poetry, language, people, death, places, Nature and things.


She feels it ripening
within her and growing
like an unplanned being.

When this being is born
earth and sky will crackle
as when flames catch fences,

or seed-pods, dehiscent,
crack, and their heart scatters:
pale wings in a rainfall.
