Intermittent Faults - Pamphlet by David Lightfoot


This could be it.
At last to enter a house
and feel, at once, at home.
What clinched it was
the distant view
towards a hill
- an echo of my boyhood -
from the study window,
flat land suddenly rising,
a ridge enclosing,
excluding, hinting
at what lies over and beyond.

Fourteen poems from a journal by David Lightfoot, author of Wounds Heal, Down Private Lanes and the novel Winterman's Company.

Price £3.50, available from Sunk Island Publishing. Please contact us for details and review copies. ISBN 978-1-874778-41-7
