Here are 12 poems - one for each of the hours of the day - on clocks, watches and other timing devices. They range from a brash alarm clock and a dignified grandfather clock to an egg-timer and a hectoring pub clock, calling 'Time', and the great cosmic clock in which we all find ourselves. There is variety, wit and humour and a touch of the serious mystery of time.
"The pleasure for me in reading these well produced books is the poetry of Heath-Stubbs, running in harness with the truly delightful drawings of Emily Johns."
Arthur Moyse, Freedom
John Heath-Stubbs was born in London in 1918. His books of verse include Artorius (1972). In 1973 he was awarded the Queen’s Medal for poetry. He died on Boxing Day 2006.
