This Floating World

Libby Hart’s poetry hums with the music of nature from the gossip of water, that whistle-soaked air, to the lipsound of stones. She is on a rare march through Ireland and captures it in stunning verse. Love beats from page to page. A great collection of sights and sounds, right down to the smallest creak of wings.
