To give a dull day meaning
Each balanced on its lopped end,
I left the counter tableau
But secrets of the kitchen
Things Unsaid is the author’s own choice of poems from a writing career that spans nearly half a century. It draws on seven published collections and includes many uncollected and new poems. Tony Connor–s poems – often, as he terms it, quasi-autobiographical – combine memory, experience and imagination with firm craftsmanship. The results are remarkable for their precision, their wry humour and broad human sympathies.
