Join Melissa and Scout as they walk down towards the village at sunset. The shadows of oaks stretch long over the stubble fields, the evening star comes out and pheasants fuss and cluck themselves to bed. Paraic O’Donnell joins us from Co. Wexford; he’s the author of two novels: The Maker of Swans and The House on Vesper Sands. ‘Poem in which a small dog looks into the sun’ is by Jane Commane, whose collection Assembly Lines is published by Bloodaxe.
