People’s Nature Poem: The Life Breath Song

18th November 2021

Kathleen Jamie recently wrote us:

‘As Scotland’s new Makar my contribution to COP26 was to arrange for a People’s Nature Poem. I asked the Scottish public to send in just one line each (we got c1000!) and I shaped and arranged them. Working with the Scottish Poetry Library we had 3 short Filmpoems made, using some of the lines. I think they’re lovely and maybe CBTR readers will too?’

We reckon you probably will. Find the first, ‘The Life Breath Song’, below.
