  • I picked up this book at a lovely converted smithy I was staying at with friends in Llanthony Sheers country It was signed to the owner of the property There was something quite magical about reading Owen Sheer s first collection of poetry in the landscape that inspired so many of the verses Really recommend it to all poetry buffs.


  • I liked Skirrid Hill, Sheers second collection better, but there s a rich harvest here too I should point out I d say this even if I didn t know the turf Favourite poem in the collection is Lambing.


  • Really enjoyed these poems especially the ones concerned with Wales and family Very clear and focused but with plenty of depth.
