Easter Wings by George Herbert

Found this great example of metaphysical concrete poetry by George Herbert as I prepare for some work with artist Ashokkumar D Mistry in the 1620s House and Garden at Donnington Le Heath in North West Leicestershire.

In its original published form it’s published at ninety degrees to the norm so as to look like butterfly wings whereas in most modern publications it’s published the same as way as other poetry, other texts, so losing its butterflyness.

I’m off up to the 1620s house later this morning to meet up with Ashok as we further plan a forthcoming piece together, a workshop looking at developing new ways of engaging with and interpreting the house and grounds.
