Colour Supplement Note by Edwin Morgan

More about this item

Dear Hamish –

Thanks for splendid photograph of Englishman hit by meteorite. You seem to be having a wild-weather time up west, though it's been wild here too – snow yesterday. As you will see from the enclosed, I have been making my polaroid do things it did not want to do. 'Who is to be the master, that's all!'

Martin Dalby is setting the L.N. Monster's Song for mezzo-soprano and small orchestra (for Mayfest): performance by Chamber Group of Scotland at RSAMD on 15 May, thence in Edinburgh.

Happy Easter!
Eddie

'the L.N. Monster's Song' is 'The Loch Ness Monster's Song' in From Glasgow to Saturn (1973).

The note is written on the back of a copy of a letter from Francis Combes of the Parisian publisher Les Temps des Cerises, informing Morgan that his poem 'The Subway Piranhas' has been selected for a poster campaign in the Paris métro, and enclosing a copy of the French translation of the poem.
