Tuesday Poem: from Young Love by Anna Livesey

February, the Eastbourne sun.
The world gathered to watch us break a glass,
hold a bunch of flowers, kiss.
This was the year of making a display, of moving north.

This short, simple, but evocative stanza we have titled ‘Wedding’ in the Eastbourne anthology which is launching on December 5. It is one of two poems by Anna in the anthology, which is an explosion of 96 authors all writing in one way or another about the eastern bays. We’re proud of this book.
