Today marks the beginning of National Walking Month so today’s Friday Poem is ‘Helvellyn’ by André Mangeot from his new collection Blood Rain.
Resonant, complex, rich in heft and texture, these are mature poems that grapple with serious themes. Beautifully crafted, and partly inspired by his love of the Brecon Beacons and Snowdonia, they address the natural world, its endangerment and other pressing global issues from multiple perspectives, and with great lyrical power.
‘A thought-provoking book for turbulent times.’
– Matthew Caley
