The Tuesday Poem
The Tuesday Poem this week is "Fauverie - Emmanuel" by Pascale Petit, selected by Kathleen Jones:
Kathleen says about this poem:
This is one of the poems from Pascale Petit's newly published collection Fauverie, from Seren Books. Emmanuel is the big bell that hangs in the south tower of Notre Dame in Paris and the poem, like others in this collection, concerns the death of a father and the powerful pull of a great city, as well as memories that are going to 'reverberate through a life'. But things are not exactly as they seem.
