Beech a poem by Elizabeth Jennings

Autumn’s Wild Wind Blows

Autumn’s wild wind blows
Some leaves fly and some leaves cling
Such a dithering

Elizabeth Jennings, (1926-2001) An English poet initially linked to the group of poets including Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin and Thom Gunn known as ‘The Movement’, Jennings’ work exhibits the unassuming technical craft of her poetry and its emotional restraint are qualities that were praised by the poets and critics of the period and continued to be abiding characteristics of her work.
