JLM Morton & Susie Hetherington

A Litany
for a Hedgerow




For Wordsworth, a hedgerow was hardly a hedgerow
but a little line 'of sportive wood run wild'.
In this work, JLM Morton and Susie Hetherington
run wild with the hedgerow,
unveiling its secrets, naming its parts
and celebrating its part in our lives.
an important and intriguing sense of place and time.

Beautifully presented as a concertina-folded
mixture of poetry and drawings, Sentient offers
a 'conversation with the natural world'
and 'a meditation on hedgerows,
resilience & renewal'
and echoes the tradition of the illuminated manuscript,
in a contemporary take on the Book of Hours.

Sentient will be available shortly.






wild and world

be the buzzard

read the palm

of sky




the blue flame of sky


do not say how
the early colour
of spring is not green
but arterial red
