Arnside Knott LA5 0BL Colours are leaving early as July dries draining the greens that clothe its usual flux of maybe-cloud breaks from days away and family-fed cook ups of duty-cum- guilt served out on greasy lawns The Knott's not far above Arnside's covert homes that queue to hear the rattled rack of trains salt marsh lambs and folk reversing from their memories Up there I saw it all the sanded shades of river-slouch the bay a sheet of stains. Will Daunt recently edited Eddie Wainwright’s selected poems: Pleading At The Bar of Truth, and his sixth collection of poetry Landed was published by Lapwing in 2013. Gerard Manley Hopkins: the Lydiate Connections was published in 2019, and he’s reviewed for Envoi, Pulsar, New Hope International and Tears in the Fence. The sequence ENGLAND EDGING features 100 poems of 100 syllables.
