Roberto opens a window on ancient Wye, offering a glimpse of the history of that gorgeous corner of the kingdom, its religion, farming, the lush orchards, and the commanding oast houses, the wildlife, and the astonishing views of the heavens.
The Wye business community website has announced that copies of this new poem will be on offer on Saturday, 4th November, at the Wye Farmer’s Market, where Roberto will be appearing.
The community website says, 'His recent poem West Window reflects on the historical past of Wye and the very foundations that moulded the village we have today.
'Through his talent Robert weaves in words that which is depicted in the beautiful window of our Parish Church. It's a tribute to all that has gone before.'
The poem, illustrated by Ann Sutherland has been reproduced as an A3 print and comes packed with its own hard-backed envelope making it an ideal gift to send to friends and loved ones.
The print is also available from Ticketyboo.br> br>
A WINDOW ON WYE
West Window - St Gregory and St Martin Church, Wye
Since ancient saints went flying,
As every ploughman vanished,
As Kentish apples ripen,
Tall yacht-like sails of oast house,
Red squirrel, crocus, magpie,
Since fourteen forty-seven,
The clouds will journey always,
Written by Robert Graham and Illustrated by Ann Sutherland
