This Moment

There was this moment
at a height in Perugia
with the stone wall
balancing my bottled water
while I placed one hand
to rest, palm-down,
and felt a warmth so sudden
that I lay my arm along it
to the elbow in a fusion
of well-being, gazing out
across the roof-tiles’
heated terracotta
to the mountain range
which wrapped its arm
around my vision
as a campanile in the middle-
distance sounded
with an incidental note
and everything was,
for this moment, whole.

Harry Chambers
1937 - 2012

‘For three decades and more, Harry Chambers, the Publishing Director of Peterloo Poets, has been one of the great "hearers and hearteners" of the work being done in British and Irish poetry. Peterloo Poets, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2006, is a publishing house that has earned the trust of readers and writers alike; it has managed to keep the art in touch with its traditions and alive to its possibilities.'

Peterloo Poets is a small publishing house run by Harry Chambers in Cornwall. Its books are sensitively designed; each has a striking illustrated cover and the typography is excellent. The quality of production is much better than the usual standard of poetry paperbacks issued by major publishers.'
