  • yesterday to the hens and loosing them into their yard I walk to the cowshed and I bank a fire in the stove in the room where by now in years now gone sixty cows would already have stood and let themselves be milked and sent back to the paddock and the river and I walk back to the house for coffee to let the fire make up its mind

  • up all the usual suspects Each issue will reflect its editor s taste I m delighted and a little relieved to be in there my philosophical collie and I 2 The Artist His Model And Bronwyn Lea has included my poem The Artist His Model in Australian Poetry Journal 2 2 out December 2012 The Artist the first poem I managed to finish after the Montreal Prize last year the scale and weight of that prize had stopped me in my poetic tracks for a month or two It s a different poem for me it s a dramatic monologue for a start In it I channel Henri Matisse imagining his making the drawings and studies that became his painting The Artist His Model It s a kind of ekphrasis I suppose Nice becomes Kingscliff in the poem 1919 becomes 2012 and Matisse I guess becomes me It s a poem written just after my fiftieth birthday after a summer spent on north coast of New South Wales That coast washes the poem But it woke into my consciousness during a visit to the Matisse exhibition at GOMA in Brisbane in late December There is in Matisse s life and work a strain between sensuality and refinement between wantonness and propriety between the Bohemian and the Bourgeois that I seem to understand There is delight in the shapes and shades of the world there is a wanting I share to let each thing on earth each carnal thing stand free of all one s desire for it and one s longing to make it over into one s beloved or one s work of art this I also I understand And attempt There is a capacity for love in Matisse and his work and for all I know in me

  • poetry what I believe and how I work You d have found them on my whiteboard that weekend short sutras dropped leaves In the essay I was reprising a speech I gave in September to the Society of Women Writers and rehearsing the beginning of the last chapter of Reading Slowly Losing the Plot What I m talking about in the essay is why I believe in poetry and what it is about poetry some poetry I believe in specifically Most likely my essay won t show you how to write a poem But it may help you understand why we need poetry so much It may also let you see how it is that I write and why A poem is a hint that nails a thesis to a door I write there Poetry is the one night stand that lasts ten thousand nights And Poetry recasts life s exquisite spell So there 2 Nature Me Another small essay I ve just finished is Nature Me for the Scottish Poetry Library s journal I ll be in Scotland at the Scottish Poetry Library in Edinburgh in early April 2013 running a workshop on poetry and place and reading with Emily Ballou My visit to Edinburgh is the last leg of a reading lecturing tour I m making that also takes in Wales England Oxford and Northern Ireland through late March and early April 2013 Colin Waters editor of the SPL journal asked me very sweetly if I could write a piece for the journal on the theme of my own and my poetry s relationship with landscape he thought this might help prepare the way for my visit up north in April Ecology is the theme for the Scottish Poetry Library s program next year as I understand it And it s the story of my life and it s the story I can t help telling through most of my work As I say in the essay It is when I make poems that I am most nearly at ease with the natural world the everything else I m not Especially when I make poems with landscape in them which is most of the time but even when I don t I seem unable not to remember the earth the form of things the voices of birds the colour of rain the bend of river the extinction of species the tipping points the oceans of plastic even when I try I write a love song no trees in sight they call me a nature poet I cry out in grief I write a sonnet for my skipping child they call me a poet of place No one likes a label But I ll wear this one Nature s the story I keep saying and we re in it Live your life in place not time I wrote in Eclogues so I guess I asked for it If the essay caused me some grief at first it was only
