The Alabaster Box is cool and rich; the perspectives fearless and unexpected; the poems reaching for a solace which is difficult and wintry; but we are in safe hands with this poet, showing us ” Venus seen from a window in a fast moving train”

Myra Vennard is one of the astonishments of our time in Northern Ireland.

An aesthetic from the off in her late beginning with Easter Saturday-2019, she has through subsequent volumes of poetry refined her vision, deepened her reflection and stilled her voice to such an extent that she represents now a formidable and economic poetry. Damian Smyth
