The themes of Donald Ward's poems are traditional - human relationships, religious meditation and, above all, the natural world. Yet their expression is entirely his own, combining a fine lyricism with striking imagery. At first glance familiar, Ward's landscapes, animals and people become both strange and more real through his intensity of perception.

About Author

Donald Ward was born in Belmont, Surrey, in 1909, but lived virtually his entire life in Kent. Leaving school at 14, he worked for the Post Office until his retirement in 1972 after nearly fifty years' service. He came to writing relatively late, publishing his first volume of poems, 'The Dead Snake', at the age of 62. It received an Arts Council Award, and several books and pamphlets appeared over the subsequent thirty years. He died in February 2003, shortly after completing work on 'Adonis Blue'.
