“We can take draw solace from the fact that both our historically strong and newly evolving poetic traditions – performance or page, pastoral or post-industrial – will be there to remind and inspire us, to offer solace or make us think a little more deeply about what has just taken place. As the dust settles on last week’s events it is perhaps time to heed Shelley’s advice from almost two centuries ago; “Stand ye calm and resolute, / Like a forest close and mute, / With folded arms and looks which are / Weapons of unvanquished war.””
