The Shepherd Avenger

A book-spine poem!


I first came across this idea on Stan Carey’s blog Sentence First . I liked it so much that I decided to have a go myself. So here it is: my very first book-spine poem!


The Shepherd Avenger

This green land crisis,

The shadow of the lynx,

Odds against white wolf,

High hunt victory,

The sacred cut.


Thanks to the authors Frederick Forsyth, John Fullerton, Robin Cook, Victoria Holt, Dick Francis, David Gemmell, David Eddings, Joseph Conrad, David Hewson. And of course to Stan Carey for the inspiration!
