“Travellers report that there is a bird in America whose body is so luminous that we may read by the light it emits” — Gentlemen’s Magazine (1747)
How far would you travel to find that bird? What would you do if you found it? If you got lost, would you know your way home? Would you retrace your steps, or forge ahead and build anew, by birdlight?
Here are poems about hope, endeavour, invention, migration, conflict, upheaval, loss, findings, change and courage.
