    What a brilliant collection of poems he says it as it is. Larkin wrote poetry should be “true an beautiful” scallion achieves beauty through simple truths put in most economical manner possible. This is the real world something one rarely sees in poetry.

Best Poem of Vernon Scannell


My son aged three fell in the nettle bed.
'Bed' seemed a curious name for those green spears,
