The Green Children

The Green Children

by Martin Newell

Martin Newell’s epic poem,
a re-working of the old East Anglian legend
“The Green Children of Woolpit”.

“It happened when the grain was high
And ripened fully in its husk
Lord Sun was lolling in the sky
and rubicund at dawn and dusk
A year content in middle age
when time drifts by like thistledown
Yet, no two days would seem the same
After the Green Children came

Edition of 250. Hand typeset in 14pt Verona by James Dodds and Jessica Jane Charleston from Shed Press (, hand stitched and jacketed with Amelie Genestine-Charlton (Shed Press) and Catherine Dodds, numbered and signed by Martin Newell.
