Three poems in Fenland Poetry Journal

The UK’s Fenland Poetry Journal is a lovely small format print journal from England published twice a year by editor Elisabeth Sennitt Clough (also a poet herself).

Spring 2021

It’s such a pleasure to have three poems of mine appear in the spring 2021 issue of the journal:

“These Fugitive Wings”

“Landscape Without Snow”

“What a Fragile Thing a Year Is”

The journal features poets local and from other spots around the world. It’s quite unique.

  1. Hi Dagne
    I have just read your work Lost in the Woods 111 on poetry pause! I love it! I will check out more of your work!
    You are an inspiration. I am a beginner poet at 73., also inspired by nature.
    Kind regards from one of the fire zones – Kamloops, BC.

    1. Hi Val, thank you so much for the generous and kind comments. I’m so touched that you took time to find me here and to share your response to my poem. I think it’s wonderful that you are starting out with poetry at 73. I also started late compared to people who get an English degree and an MFA (none of that for me) right out of school. I think it’s never too late and it’s a wonderful thing for mind and heart! You’re living through a tough season in BC, my thoughts are with you and your neighbours. Stay safe.
