One thought on “Kerry-Lee Powell’s “The Lifeboat”

  1. What I write is, of course, biased. The subject of the poem is my brother. The elegy moved me — some seventy years after the event — to tears. Although I was only a very young schoolboy at the time I remember the event and the aftermath with great clarity. The elegy sticks to the truth, yet enhances it, gives it a wider meaning and, for me, is deeply moving.
