Praise for Bird Cherry

“Early on, this collection leads you into finding in one river every river you’d ever touched. These poems run as gently as water, and as relentlessly. They cut with the grace and ease of a ship’s keel or sickle blade. Roshni Gallagher has pondered much in her heart: memory; bereavement; nature and nurture in Scotland, Ireland, and Guyana. Astonishingly both light and deep, centred and moving, these are fine lyrics of being-in-place while being-in-between.”
– Anthony (Vahni) Capildeo

“Incredible imagery and metaphors with such sparseness – the space as important as the ink.”

“Thoughtful, sad, and graceful in its strength; the lines sing.

“carefully crafted, deeply meaningful, poems that will stay with me for a long time to come”

– Edwin Morgan Poetry Award judges
