A diary with a difference…..

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.  The book can be purchased from Amazon by clicking HERE!
