John Burnside

John Burnside was one of my tutors at university.  At the time I didn’t realise how well known and well published he was.  It is only recently, after reading his poetry and prose, that I’ve come to appreciate the simplicity of his lines and complexity of images and meanings.  This is one of those poems that ‘just is’.
