This third collection of poems by Shaun Traynor maintains his high standard of perfection in verse. It is an emotional narrative of love lost, love regained. It is a love story, but there are also poems of truly beautiful pastoral observations. The title poem shows the poet’s ability to be gritty when an urban landscape demands.
