The Occasions of Love

The Occasions of Love

the occasions of love are few,
and should not be strained or studied;
rather they should be taken gently
and treasured, not mourned for.

This is the powerful theme of Simon Fletcher’s first collection of poems and Ted Hughes has written of it: “I enjoyed the deft fluency, the economy, the pure tone, the pang – (as Frost, said no pang, no poem)”
