The Chestnut Horses
It must be the chestnut horses
their hooves planted
And it must be
across their unhurried
slows to theirs.
it must be the chestnut
How long will the pink house stay pink?
Nina Bogin writes of her second collection that she has ‘drawn together poems that deal with the personal – family, friendship, love and loss; poems about landscape and place; and poems that try to come to grips with the larger world and its chaos. Uniting the poems is a common thread: the natural world and its impenetrable presence which, though threatened, remains a source of renewal and, therefore, of faith.’
Praise for Nina Bogin 'Painful, moving and consolatory... sure-footed, clear-sighted evocations of the lovely delicacies of a transient world and a brave testimony to the waning of a treasured relationship.'
Michael Glover, The Tablet 'She is always responsive and thoughtful...analytical and angry to excellent effect.'
Dilys Wood, Artemis Poetry
'Nina Bogin has a rare skill with words.'
Anthony Clay, Chase
'Nina Bogin writes beautiful, spare, exemplary poems from which everything unnecessary is quietly stripped away.'
Alison Brackenbury, Poetry Review
