I Am All Longing

April 10, 2020    

Wood engraving of a tree

‘Dark is this earth-hall, I am all longing’.

New wood-engraving illustrating lines from the Old English elegy, ‘The Wife’s Lament’.

May it be a tribute to all those feeling enclosed and overwhelmed. I hope respite comes to you soon, whatever form it may take.
