The poems in ‘Earth’s Almanac’ emerged over a 15-year period following the sudden death of Lucy Newlyn’s sister, and trace stages in an ongoing work of grieving. In the first part Newlyn observes the changing seasons in her garden in Oxford and her beloved Borrowdale. As almost a whole year passes, she cannot mistake portents of impending loss. The advent of November and the collection’s second section begin an intense sequence concerning the last weeks of her sister’s life, and the immediate aftermath of bereavement. The collection ends in the vast sea-scapes of Cornwall, where Newlyn finds a new home; in this new scene she explores a healing connection with the sea, while continuing to reflect on cyclical processes of losing, remembering, and mourning.
