Poem of the Month: October

October 12th

All year it has been there, though hidden well,

looking like all the other numbers, just

waiting to be ticked with barely a glance,

a date to pass through, as we thought we must.

 

And yet now, see what it has done to us?

Just see what, all the time, it held in store:

a day to trip us, through remaining years.

How could we not have noticed it before?

 

From: A Walk in Winter (Enitharmon)

*

Street unearths loss, memory and redemption from English terrain like few other poets.
The Times

The formal precision...and the burnished language are reminiscent of Geoffrey Hill...Cello is a beautifully achieved collection infused with all the craft that Street has acquired throughout his extensive career. The poems are both detached and perfectly crafted.
