Poems by Simon Lamb

I imagine it will happen outside,

simply so the sky can soundtrack the scene,

that calm note the air makes when the universe creaks.

From the vastness of the firmament to the titchy curl of a seahorse’s tail, in this beautiful bind-up of five themed poetry sequences, Simon Lamb twirls readers through glittering worlds with warm and wonder-filled verse.​
