‘There is an extraordinary eye in these poems: an eye that fuses images from Indian mythology with precise observations of the English countryside and primarily of its bird life. The effect is startling, like a brilliant tapestry, or as if Edward Thomas had met Rabindranath Tagore. But the voice is thoroughly modern, warm, engaging, full of insight and wonder.’ – Vicki Feaver

‘A collection of quiet pleasure, the subject handled with confidence, small ordinary details suddenly significant, as though a gifted flower arranger had composed bridal posies out of wood and weed.’ – The New Writer
