Old and Tough / As love

Moya Cannon reads her poem 'Pollen' in which she describes the powdery grain as 'old and tough / as love'. The poem is published in Cannon's collection Carrying the Songs (Carcanet, 2007).

The mountains, the sea and our primal and enduring responses to the beauty of the endangered earth are the inspiration for many of Moya Cannon's poems. Archaeology and geology figure, too, as gateways to deeper understanding of our mysterious relationship with the natural world and our past.
