Beautiful books 05

A mournful cover for this volume of Irish-inspired and other poems by C Day Lewis.

Surprisingly light use over 40 years or so in the Borders library system...

All Souls' Night. Soon closing time will clear
a space for silence, last cars climb towards Kent
throbbing like wind-torn snatches of lament.
Où sont des morts les phrases familières
from All Souls' Night
