Author: Rex Sly

First Pasture Price: £10.99

Status: In Stock

My Ancestral Home - The Fens. Poems of My Life in the Countryside

Capturing each season’s changes on the iconic waterways and fields of the Fen, Rex Sly paints heart-warming glimpses into his intimate relationship with the soil and history of the ancient fenlands that his family have tended over four-hundred years.

His poetry has natural cadences that complement the migrating rhythms of birdlife, the microclimate and live waters, its fauna and human characters. He shares Fenland secrets; not only its unique engineering, but the breeding patterns of pink-footed geese, long-established rooks’ nests and heronries, seagulls following the plough. Sly inhabits each painted scene with his own joys and wonder at the local changes he has witnessed; in the comings and goings of generations of farmworkers, railway lines; whole communities, as traditional farming methods gave way to mechanisation while not forgetting his family and friends.
