Northly by David Toms


ISBN 978-0-9957916-8-8
Northly is a haunting evocation of the culture and spirit of northern lands, especially Ireland and of Norway, his adopted home. The language is stark, precise and unexpectedly poignant, as the poet traces the ancient and contemporary pathways of the wanderer. Out of many strands of history, family and the contemporary world, the poet creates a beautiful tapestry of images and impressions that is both mysterious and compelling.

“The nostalgia of the emigrant far from home is here coupled with an unrelenting realism in poems of clarity, vigour and beauty…work and politics, the sea, history and the present crowd this collection.”
William Wall

“The title poem, Northly is such a triumph of images, altering your perception…It was empowering to be as witness to a book of such discoveries.” Liam Murphy, The Munster Express
