Peter Levi's final collection contains the moving lyrics he composed, often while walking round the green in the Gloucestershire village where he lived, as well as other poems written since 'Reed Music' (1997). Despite his increasing blindness, his poems retained their vivid delight in the natural world and its relationship with both the social and spiritual dimensions of life.
'I think that many of Peter Levi's poems will live; there is the mark of permanence upon them' - Elizabeth Jennings'His is certainly one of the most authentic and original, perhaps one of the major talents of his generation' - John Heath-Stubbs'Levi writes like nobody else' - P J Kavanagh
