Gospel Oak

Sharon Morris

Gospel Oak

• Paperback


‘These are fascinating and, for both reader and poet, compulsive poems about time and place and loss, in which the tender details of leaves on Hampstead Heath or the branches of an oak metamorphose into the masts of ships, or a concerto, or a lost tenderness, or the rural humming beneath the street, or the oak – veteran of centuries of wars – with his gospel of “green persistence”.

‘These are lithe, fluent poems which typically begin here and now and end beyond it, whose delicate descriptions of nature often evoke a history as it were “under the ground”.’

John Haynes, winner of the Costa Prize for Poetry

Read Trees in Winter from the collection featured on Oxford Brookes University website.
