I shot some footage in Ceredigion, West Wales, earlier this week — and all the time, I was hearing in my mind R S Thomas’s poem “Welsh Landscape.”
…so here it is, with the voice of the poet himself.
Part 1 of a two-part homage to Kenneth Patchen (Part 2 is here) by Dekklun Cuinn (I think. Or at least uploaded by him). The reading is by the poet himself, recorded for Folkways Records. The text of the poem may be read here.
