About the Book

These poems are alert to both the superficiality and the seriousness of the everyday, often showing that human feelings are complicated and surprising. Renowned not only as a poet, but also as a lyricist, his lyrics explore belief and unbelief, meaning and mystery, dealing with love and loss with both realism and compassion. The spiritual, even the supernatural, is never far from the surface in these poems, but Davies never settles for the simplistic. His quiet, unassuming style is powerful, moving, and redemptive.

About the Author
Grahame Davies

Grahame Davies is a Welsh poet, author and lyricist, who has won numerous prizes, including the Wales Book of the Year Award. As a much-sought-after lyricist, he collaborates extensively with composers and wrote the words for the song 'Sacred Fire', which, with Sarah Class's music performed by South African soprano Pretty Yende, was one of the musical highlights of the Coronation of King Charles III in May 2023, and was described by Andrew Lloyd Webber as 'mesmerising'. .
