Reflection in a July Bookshop Window

There's my book of poems and there am I

a transparent poet. A summer sky

beats down on images a decade made.

I burn up and the cover starts to fade.


                                             From the sequence, 'Morning Notes at City Quay'



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.
