T. Kozumplik | 11 comments Hello Tom,

I'm glad you posted this. I like that Sir Hill seems almost a throwback in style.

'When snow like sheep lay in the fold'
and 'dead cones upon the alder shook'
- From 'In Memory of Jane Fraser'

I was interested to note that he uses cloud and shroud together which I have done in one of my poems.

'The scummed pond twitches. The great holly-tree,
Emptied and shut, blows clear of wasting snow'
- From Piam Memoriam

Mercian Hymns is full of wonderful lines- it's my favourite by far.

Thanks for introducing me to this poet, Tom.

Best wishes,

Thomas Kozumplik
