A poem by Philip Gross
This poem is taken from a book called The Water Table by Philip Gross. The book is a meditation on the landscape around the Bristol Channel. It won the T.S. Elliot prize in 2009. I like to think that Philip was looking at Flat Holm when he wrote this poem. He now lives in Penarth. I would like to thank Bloodaxe Books for providing permission to reproduce this poem.
