Making Beds for the Dead
Hay Festival 2004
The great Welsh poet discusses and reads her new collection which celebrates her themes of family, landscape and nature. The title poem charts the journey of a virus in 'the plague year'. Come from outer space, it travels - on a fox's paw, the beak of a kite and a crow and a buzzard - into the very heart of our lives.
