Swimming out to Sea

Publisher: Michael Heath

This small selection of poetry explores the themes of loss, memory and the longing for those fleeting flashes of happiness that are all too brief in our lives.

From the tragedy of a young child’s death in ‘Shooting Star’ to a small moment in time perfectly captured in ‘The Rise from Castle Combe’, his verse recalls the melancholy of Thomas Hardy and the easy narrative of John Betjeman.
