THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BRIDGE






THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BRIDGE

Reviews of ‘The Other Side of the Bridge’ (Indigo Dreams 2012)

Green's mind possesses unerring musicality. She thinks musically whereas some poets translate their thoughts into music.
Djelloul Marbrook www.djelloulmarbrook.com

Wherever she is, Green connects with the roots and ancestry, the stories and sense-memories that shape a place and thus its people.
Walter E Harris III

"These are poems of vivid and compelling energy. Nature is a living presence throughout these poems, which are spontaneous, alert, and rich in transformations. Landscape is this poet's muse, be it her native Cumbria or Long Island or the Mid West. Memory is also a rich seam for this poet." - Penelope Shuttle

Inside this volume are poems of great tenderness and moment – urging us to bend a knee, like Walt Whitman, “to better understand the blades of grass.” If fierceness and tenderness are two faces of the same coin, then the poems in ‘The Other Side of the Bridge’ are works of rare coinage. – George Wallace, Writer-in-Residence Walt Whitman Birthplace

“These are poems brimming with deep generosity. Although a faithful chronicler of Northern life, she holds out her arms to people across the world. She is a listener, a storyteller, working carefully with language to find the colours of reality. - Rose Flint
