Great poems are feral, escape their books. Olivia Byard's The Wilding Eye exhibits the artistry of a wild meadow. The range is huge, from Homo Erectus beginnings, to possible species collapse: our stark choices and hope expressed in major climate-change poems. Damage and isolation heal with self-knowledge and kindness. We will die as hedgerow plants do; meanwhile, we can flower. Nature is 'boss': break her rules and 'a watchful second strikes'. Obey her, and we may yet flourish among 'sweet riot and tangle'. Selected poems from earlier collections, updated and reordered to complement, complete the volume; From a Benediction was short-listed for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection; Strange Horses was reviewed variously as: 'fine hewn, often funny' and 'a resetting of intellectual history'.
