Publisher: Peterloo Poets (Dec 1997)
Mike’s second book with Peterloo Poets ranging from the Himalayas (Hermit – Shingo La / Khumbu Glacier Nightfall) to the Yorkshire Dales (Lear In Dentdale / Haytime). Less autobiographical than Daddy Edgar’s Pools with more sense of form this is a selection of finely crafted and lyrical pieces.
The poem below follows on from another Dales poem, Village Wedding and comes from the almost 50 yrs that Mike has had a home in the Yorkshire Dales
