Careful observation

Our next poetry recommendation.

Today's recommendation is Robin Robertson. Robin Robertson is a Scottish poet, brought up where, as he puts it, “history, legend and myth merged cohesively in the landscape.”  In recent months, I think many of us have noticed things around us more closely, and what I like about Robertson's poems is the very close observation they include. Details are recorded with precision and take us to wherever he is in each poem.

As always, you can find many of Robertson's poems on the Internet.
