The True Story of Someone Putt Only Half Heard

“This poem is a true story about the family that lived in our house fifty years ago, one of whose children never learnt to walk forwards and subsequently died. The story keeps fading out, as if being blown away by the wind. The discord between the circling wind and the eccentric child, (commemorated in the poem’s failure to move straightforwardly forward) was inspired by the circles and slipknots of The Score.” Alice Oswald
