Late Love Poems
Steve Griffiths’ Late Love Poems are a series of celebrations and meditations, poems of playfulness and tragedy, loss and recovery – while time still has some tricks to play, some joyful, some cruel. It’s a story of two young people who were together in the Seventies, went their separate ways, made their lives and had their families; and their coming together again in their mid-fifties. The poems carry a charged resonance between past and present, and inhabit a world where generosity is unexpectedly abundant, and is as playful as it is hard-earned. They are a new and surprising – and surprised – departure for Steve.
