Robert Nisbet


In her back yard, their yard,
there were a coal bunker, a stack of kindling,
a bird table, two apple trees,
bramble downgarden and a stretch of local grass.
He spent four springs there
while the hedges sopped through sunlight
and the burst of tits and rooks and starlings
renewed the shout of season.
