“When the need arises to excise the troubles of a day just gone, this is a book to be reached for and, as with lowering one’s face to a bowl of chilled water, dipped into. Dan Healy’s poems are quiet moments… be they of acutely observed park, roadside caff or river – they ask us to share in his sense of wonder at a moment’s this-ness, ‘...a shiver of light...’”
