Three poems by Walter Perrie

It’s a great privilege to have been given Walter Perrie’s consent to share with you three poems from his forthcoming collection The Ages of Water. Under his own imprint, Fras (Gaelic for ‘seed’, ‘a scattering’ and ‘a small shot for a gun’) he has not only published the long-standing and eponymous literary journal Fras but also a wealth of collections and pamphlets of poetry, translations, interviews, memoirs and short stories from an eclectic range of primarily Scottish authors, including Alasdair Gray, John Herdman and Margaret Bennett. Walter is a dynamic force in Scottish letters and, as can be seen from these poems, a first-rate poet with many collections to his name and credit.
