Swimming Through Lime Green Willows

Swimming Through Lime Green Willows by Richard Carpenter

This collection is of poems written over several years. I have found it interesting to select ‘Ebola Haemorrhagic Fever’ and find it refers just as clearly to nursing a loved one suffering Covid, and the possible consequence. There are four poems with a specific date as part of the title. Two include a date which cannot be varied, in the other two the date does not need to be precise. Over four years after the disaster we find that the Grenfell Tower fire remains a very raw problem.

27th January is the date of Holocaust Memorial.
