I'll try to keep finding new poetry recommendations for you. :)

By the way, have you seen the book of poems by Rowan Williams? You might want to check it out.

The hills around Windemere also take a purplish hue at dusk. Guess you're just a townie at heart. I have more of a struggle with 'rushes by the water we gather every day' - er no.

I agree, though, that this poem is infinitely superior to the Victorian children's hymns.

The hills of Torridon up the west coast of Scotland, in late July into August when the heather is in bloom, are 'purple headed'. Since C F Alexander who wrote the offending hymn was Irish though, not sure if this is relevant. (And a purple head does sound a bit nauseous). In any case I agree - the Wiman poem does the natural theology bit much better, and thanks for the pointer to the interview with Wiman in B&C.
