Holy Saturday Poem

12/04/2009

This weekend’s* Saturday poem in The Scotsman was the title poem from The Ambulance Box**. Great publicity for the collection! I’d heard several weeks ago that it was happening and knew the date but it only occurred to me in the middle of the week that it would be the Holy Saturday poem. An appropriate date, given the piece is about, as the paper neatly puts it,

“THE inextricable link between our suffering, our sense of celebration and our hopes for healing”.

Many thanks to the good folk of the Scottish Poetry Library for choosing it.

*I’d have posted this yesterday but couldn’t get on to Blogger for technical reasons.

**Please note that the layout isn’t quite right in the paper, because the indentation hasn’t come out at all. You’ll just have to read it in the book for the full effect on the page.
