Northly poetry collection David Toms published by Turas Press
Northly by David Toms
Poem by David Toms from his collection Northly published by Turas Press ISBN 978-0-9957916-8-8 This is beautifully crafted poetry, contemporary in its themes yet timeless in its evocation of the traveller through space and time. "Northly" creates a stunning sensory and pictorial experience in pitch-perfect tone, of the landscape, history and language of these northern lands, and our place within it. "Toms reminds us that we are constantly resolving 'in new voices/what time dissolved.'" Anamaría Crowe Serrano
