‘it was boys like the Bantams
– wee men named efter
In Bantam is a sense of place – moors and Lochs, home, family – men in ours who fought in wars, language and individual battles. Love too, Diamond Colonsay is a beautiful poem. Bantam did not work for me as a whole, I liked certain poems.
what joy to see love endure, dears to come down the stairs at Glassard to overhear I love you John Kay I love you Helen Kay like a surprise honeymoon, Colonsay, the shimmering sea, the long day the frank moon, the stars, the Milky Way how the years slide away the seals slither off rocks to the bay you sing every day to each other a ballad, blues, or bawdy number love: naturally occurs. Hardy.
