I wrote the poem a while ago now and then realised it somehow fit quite nicely with the woodcut of Eric Gill that I tried to emulate a few weeks ago. The original image is called “The Soul and the Bridegroom” and as with all of Gill’s woodcuts they convey such depth and beauty. A typographer, printer, artist, sculptor and a man of many hats (and other vices). Plus, this is as close to Valentine’s day mush as I will venture this year.
