my tiny skull
you will remember
is as delicate as jingle shell
those strange blue
ligaments below my wings
slick with blood
(extract from ‘Aigrette, Spring 1893’ by Jane Lovell)

This Tilting Earth, by Jane Lovell
With climate concerns (rightly) starting to dominate the news, this is poetry for our time. Described by Seren poetry editor Amy Wack as ‘haunting and memorable, with concerns that are both urgent and universal’, Jane Lovell’s writing aligns a deep feeling for the natural world with an acute lyric sensibility, and a profound ethical awareness for our responsibility for the planet. ‘It is also a thing of exceptional beauty.’
Now available from Seren for £5.00, with a striking and discomforting cover image from award-winning wildlife photographer Britta Jaschinski, we are pleased to have five copies of This Tilting Earth to giveaway to lucky readers!
