Welsh Landscape by R. S. Thomas

Poet: | Nationality: , | Filmmaker:

A poem by the great 20th-century Welsh poet R. S. Thomas. Documentary filmmaker Robin Davies-Rollinson writes on the Vimeo page,

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.
