City Lights: a new poetry collection from Melos

My latest poetry collection City Lights published by the Melos Press is now out.  This wide-ranging and versatile 32-page pamphlet collection contains the longer sequences “The Song of Rhodri” (the voice of an imaginary medieval Welsh bard) and “The World Tree” (poems about trees in myth and reality drawing on Norse legend) as well as poems of contemporary political resonance. From the Welsh countryside to Washington DC and all points in between these poems are both lyrical and engaged.

My recent collections, A Quartet in Winter and The Yellow Wheelbarrow can also be ordered here.
