Starspin is a reflective collection which includes poems published in a wide range of leading magazines and journals. These poems are a reminder that all life comes at a price but that we should value that cost and the benefits that ensue.
From his own first memories to those of our planet, the author takes us through all that is bad and good about existence: death and emotional rebirth, the pleasure of the environment, along with a huge inquisitiveness about the universe and our place in it. Taken in conjunction with his previous full collection, the poems here also provide a deeply felt account of what it is to lose someone twenty years too soon.
“Barrasford Young is at his best with his sharp natural descriptions and recreation of scene and place.”
