About the Poem
About the poet
Jane Draycott studied at King's College London and Bristol, where she took a postgraduate degree...
We shall have no clouds today
We shall have no clouds today, only
the wasps' slow eclipse of the windfalls
and archangel heron, fanning what fires?
Bone by bone, I lay myself out
in the grass, wonder what will you do
to put the heart across me now?
