Colour Poem

(source: Edwin Morgan poem from Colour Poems, 1978)

Yesterday would have been Edwin Morgan’s 101st birthday and it marked the end of the Edwin Morgan Centenary celebrations. I was honoured to contribute to the Seculative Books The Edwin Morgan Centenary Collection (detals here).  The Morgan poem prompting mine above, and the others from his Colour Poems booklet, can be read here.

I have just ordered a facsimile copy of Edwin Morgan’s 1982 booklet nine one word poems from Essence Press (Julie Johnson). It looks wonderful and you can order for only £5 here.
