Collected and New Poems

David Perman is best known as a publisher and organiser of poetry, but his own poems have appeared in many magazines and anthologies. His Collected contains the best of three published collections since 1997 and a wealth of new poems. These range from travels in Asia and Greece, searching for J.S. Bach in Germany, nostalgia for a London childhood, suffering a stroke and living and writing through the Covid 19 lockdowns. There are also poems about love lost and found, and about the English countryside.


“These are largely earnest, friendly, accessible poems,” wrote Catherine Smith. “There’s evidence of the poet’s compassion, humour and humanity here and at their best they hit the spot”.
