I had often heard of love.
a cloud shadow.
I cannot sleep for want of you.
I’ll be the book.
this fragrent cadence.
as if love.
released from the bow.
I’ll swim a river of reasons.
I love you to bafflement.

Thank you for the copy of Heart Sings! It’s such a beautifully produced book — a real delight to handle. I love the poetry. I was grabbed by the playful and effervescent immediacy of the style and, as I read, on some deeper level, there arose a sense of the deep love that inspired the verse. As such the whole work is deeply meaningful and exquisitely constructed whilst also seeming spontaneous and almost effortless — for which the beautiful watercolours serve as lyrical metaphors.
