The Scottish Poetry Library has just launched its online selection of the Best Scottish Poems 2007. There are indeed some very fine poems included in the selection. I’m especially pleased to see work by our younger poets – Rachel Boast, Chloe Morrish, Frances Leviston, to name but three.
(Memo to self: try harder to get more good poems published in 2008. And do try to lighten up a bit; your 2007 oeuvre is darker and heavier than ever.)
