I have been flicked through some of this book. One chapter, really liked, is about the travelling post office, the end of the Night Mail, and ends with a poem, The last poet.

The first two verses are thus:

Love these days is the blink of an eye:
Mile-high love in an aeroplane
Lay-by love at the end of a lane
Satellite love in the radio-waves

But ours was written, ours was signed,
We were lovers all through the night
Lovers by watermark, lovers by mail
We were lovers by morning light
We were lovers by rail
I believe that both levels can still be accommodated
There’s a tribute to Ted Hughes: ‘Ted Hughes left his mark wherever he went. You can still feel his presence in those towns and villages at the top end of the Calder Valley…..’
Armitage writes an amusing poem called Full moon (in my opinion), page 253

It’s midnight in Luddenden
Midnight in Luddenden
Midnight in Luddenwhen
All of a suddenden
Here comes a shape in a cloak and a hood.
They’re holding hands in Luddendenfoot
And there’s trouble in Luddenden
Trouble in Luddenden
Luddenden, Luddenden, Luddendenfoot , etc

A quick read of twenty or so poems commissioned by the National Trust from Poet Laureate, Simon Armitage, on the theme of spring blossoms, embellished by Angela Harding's woodcut illustrations. Nothing to not like, if not exactly transporting. Will probably reward a re-read, and despite Harding's bio at the back being only 20% the length of Armitage's, it's really her contribution that lifts this from a low pick to a solid one 4🌸

Reason read: BAC
This is an example of a comic debate poetry. It was written in Middle English and translated by Simon Armitage. I love what he did with it. Such a fun poem and he wrote himself into the poetry. It may be old but still relevant today. It covers identity, culture, class, and the right to be heard.

I came to this collection from the poem "Poem" in an anthology elsewhere. Mr. Armitage is gritty and direct; some of his poetry is very fine. He seems angry and many of these poems are violent and disturbing. I found some offensive - I suppose that is the point.
