Under Divis Mountain

The poetry of Nora Hughes takes us through decades of Belfast: love in London; Moria refugee camp on Lesbos with guts and grace. I wobble off the rollercoaster of emotion in the shadow of Divis Mountain. Thank you to @TemplarPoetry for publishing this collection. I honour Nora’s excellence and her lifetime devotion to language and literacy.

Her poems hold

“the weight of all our words,

the actions of a day, a year, a lifetime that led to this.’

(end of title poem in Under Divis Mountain)
