Full Product Description
Kenneth Steven, a best-selling poet, takes us on Columba's difficult journey from Ireland to the west coast of Scotland. He takes us on many other journeys too - both real and imagined, ancient and modern. Columba's journey becomes a metaphor for embarking on voyages of faith of many sorts and from many kinds of shores.
Simple, Powerful, Spiritual, this is a brilliant collection by an exceptional poet.
The fields lay white beneath a snow of sun
And birds were restless underneath, they rose and wheeled
Like silver leaves. The skies were more than blue;
Burnished and beaten with a strange brilliance.
The angels are coming, I thought;
The angels will come in the night
When a huge moon ovals through these bright and cloudless skies;
They will come to bind the sheaves
While we are fast asleep.
They will work the fields, their wings tight-folded,
All through the white night of this September,
The moon gliding high like a balloon
Over the glazed harvest of the world;
Nothing moving except the angels and the wind, until the task is done
In the warm stillness of the dawn.
"Enjoying [Kenneth Steven's work] intensely - style and subject." Ted Hughes
