The Poems: The Singing Bird

The Singing Bird, published in 2000 by GKB Books in conjunction with the Elphinstone Institute, is a collection of poems ranging from delicately barbed humorous verse to a darker treatment of the more tragic aspects of the human condition. Especially noteworthy are Sheena’s translations into the local Doric of modern poems from Greece, Poland and Romania; her own atmospheric impressions of life, past and present, at King's College; and her haunting evocations of both urban and rural existence in Aberdeen and beyond.
