The Tuesday Poem

The Tuesday Poem this week is "Sugarloaf hill" by Bill Sutton, selected by Tim Jones: http://tuesdaypoem.blogspot.co.nz/2015/06/sugarloaf-hill-by-bill-sutton.html

Tim says about this poem:

Hawkes Bay Live Poets were kind enough to invite me to be their guest reader in May 2015 - a trip I greatly enjoyed. Bill was my generous host, and before the reading he tested out my calf muscles with a climb up Sugarloaf Hill so he could show me nearby Taradale, Napier a little further away, and the wide expanse of the Bay.

I had no idea he had written a poem about Sugarloaf Hill, so when I got home and started reading his collection Jabberwocky, I was excited to see such a fine poem about a place I had visited so recently.
