‘A brilliant and original voice.’ Harold Pinter

‘A genuine and delicate poet.’ John Heath-Stubbs

(for Robert Nye)

O green and gracious Greece, in early May
I saw you young and walking on your way
Tender with flowers, taunting me in bars
I slipped between, detoxified, to be
The human philosophical vision
Of the blue sanctuary of the sea
And the iconostasis of the stars.
