"Box of Silver Birch"- The first one went, as he came, too soon. The second jumped into a lily pool and was found three days later. The third, protected by too fierce love, broke free from her lifeline, flew thousands of miles over the sea. Phoebe Hesketh started writing poetry in her thirties. When her "New and Selected Poems", "The Leave Train", were published in 1994, the reviews editor in Orbis wrote that 'Every poem in this generously thick book is beautifully achieved. She is undoubtedly one of the finest poets of our age', and in the "Times Literary Supplement" Alan Brownjohn praised her 'persistent and resourceful talent - and still capable of surprises.' This collection has even more surprises, and confirms that her poetry has lost none of its bit and youthful power.
