A High Window in Autumn

Please do take a peek at the autumn edition of the online High Window.

In this new edition, J.S Watts reviews Sometime, in a Churchyard, which she calls "a rather lovely, limited edition pamphlet of poems by Louise Warren and black and white line drawings by Charlotte Harker", and also shares a brand new poem of her own, Phantoms. Plus there's a bumper harvest of other poems and reviews

That's got to be worth checking out.
