First Cut

The 39 poems, a selection from the work of several years, range widely, from the precisely-observed descriptive to the philosophical, from the lyrical to the (subtly) polemical, from moments captured to stories told. They share precision of language, clarity of expression, and a revealing of the deeply felt.


“One poem stopped me dead with its haunting music … Thank you, thank you for The Traveller, which rescued me for a moment from my bleak New York life. It has the glimmer of the mysteries I sensed in your landscape.” Edward Field.

Sunrise from Likavittos … a tale told with elegance and precision.” Ron Woollard New Hope International Review.

“This is a collection full of hidden treasures. Behind the deceptively simple exteriors of Walton’s poems there are complex interweavings of love and pain, and sudden shifts into the unconscious.” Jeremy Hilton Fire.
