Developments by Colin Bancroft




Colin Bancroft is currently in exile in the North Pennines where he is finishing a PhD on the Ecopoetics of Robert Frost. His pamphlet ‘Impermanence’ is out with Maytree Press in October.




























I always stopped to listen to the bird song 


From the copse of oak beyond the lane. 


No two concerts were ever the same.


But not now, because


                                       the trees are long 


Gone. Now there are houses there, and cars 


That bang out Drum n Bass and old-skool 


Hip-Hop – and a forest of streetlamps that spool 


Out a canopy each night to catch the stars.
