Michael Haslam

A Sinner Saved by Grace

The title, A Sinner Saved by Grace, comes from the inscription on a lonely and isolated gravestone the poet came across while walking on the moors above his home in the Calder Valley. And indeed, the whole collection is a reaffirmation of the powers of nature, language and music by which the poet finds himself surrounded in his Pennine home.
