New Zealand Poetry - 22nd Jan 2018

New Zealand Poetry The Ballad of Fifty-One
by Bill Sewell

As the title suggests, these poems by Bill Sewell deal with the 1951 Waterfront Lockout, not as an account of the historical events but more in the way of a context and a wry commentary. 

Here is the last verse of a poem called Pause:
Sometimes though
between the uniform and the placard, 
the cologne and the calluses,
the credit and the debit:
sometimes though
decency breaks through.

When you come in to get a copy of this book, you could peruse our shelf of New Zealand poetry or ask to see some of the books from our huge on-line selection. It's good to read some of our great NZ poets.
