another poetry walk
March 31, 2016
We’ve mentioned the artist Gordon Young before. His large-scale public art projects often incorporate words or poetry. Here’s another.
Bird Stones is an installation at Mill Road Cemetery in Cambridge, England. Each of the seven pieces is engraved with a poem about a bird that frequents the cemetery and a description of the bird’s call. The standing stone sculptures are also designed to serve as perch, shelter and water source. “House Sparrow,” above, includes a bible inscription and a poem by Andrew Motion.
