‘Dorothy’s Country’

Words Lightly Spoken


Ruth Carr reads her poem Dorothy’s Country on this episode of Words Lightly Spoken.

In this poem, Ruth channels the meditations of Dorothy Wordsworth (William Wordsworth’s only sister) as she roams the 19th Century English countryside. The poem is from her collection Feather and Bone which is published by Arlen House.

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