Stratagem embraces National Poetry Day06 October 2016 - by Gráinne Walsh
In the spirit of National Poetry Day, Stratagem's contribution comes from Gráinne Walsh, who has selected 'Repeat that, repeat' by Gerard Manley Hopkins.
Cuckoo, bird, and open ear wells, heart-springs, delightfully sweet,
With a ballad, with a ballad, a rebound
Off trundled timber and scoops of the hillside ground, hollow hollow hollow ground:
The whole landscape flushes on a sudden at a sound.
