“These poems are a sad beautiful song of a long love lost. March’s merciless examination of himself and the nuances of intimacy and grief are charted against a profound knowledge and acknowledgement of nature. The sea, sky, machair and woods, and all manner of bird and plant life are simply there, in the present tense, echoing his state of mind, reminding him and ultimately restoring him. These are poems that could break the heart. They remind us that the sweetest songs are often the saddest and that all of nature resonates with our human loss and possibility of hope, if only we know how to look” Rosemary Hector
