Words Lightly Spoken


Ailbhe Darcy reads her poem Still in this episode of Words Lightly Spoken.

In her poem, Ailbhe ruminates on motherhood, childrearing and a smothering plant beloved by some but hated by others. The poem is from Ailbhe’s collection Insistence, published by Bloodaxe Books.

Words Lightly Spoken, a podcast about poetry from Ireland, is a Rockfinch production, funded by the Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
