Foreword

“Robbie’s complex understanding of the land, animals, characters and community, story and history, though rooted very particularly in place and time, carries a universal message. At best, his poems attain the timeless, anonymous quality of old Northumbrian ballad and song. It is good to read these poems on the page; but to hear them spoken in Robbie’s own gentle North Tyne accent is to participate fully in them, and in an activity which takes us to the root of what it means to be human.”
