Poems of love, loss and gain
These poems are a response to places and people Rosemary Hector has encountered over the last ten years. Some of them have already been published and others are from a project ‘A Season in Garnethill’ undertaken in 2016. With the dismay at a second fire destroying the Glasgow School of Art, which is in Garnethill, it is fitting to republish some of them as a tribute to an important place in Scotland’s psyche. Many echo the preoccupation of the middle stage of life: love, loss and gain, and the capacity to look both back and forward.
