The Hedge Without, The Stones Within
The legend of 'Stumpys Brae' forms part of the narrative of my childhood. Set in Porthall, the home of my Grandmother, this poem unearths the myth of this landscape and the generations who have inhabited it. A story of greed, sin and the devil, the unknowable qualities of nature seeps through the words and continues to resonate within this small, rural place today.
