Cut adrift by marital break-up, the poet must sort through the emotional fallout and the various ‘chattels’ left behind; a sea of characteristics props; tables, lamps, metronomes, pianos, guitars. The poet’s sons are at the heart of this collection where pathos is balanced by humour amidst the characters of a small country town. Boy Running , is the artful collection of poems by noted poet from Wales, Paul Henry, and the first to follow his widely praised: The Brittle Sea: New and Selected Poems . Also a singer-songwriter Henry is known for his precise lyricism, intimate tone and a cast of characters inspired (like Dylan Thomas) by his childhood by the sea in Aberystwyth, west Wales.

Casgliad o gerddi celfydd gan y bardd nodedig Paul Henry yw Boy Running , yn dilyn ei gyfrol flaenorol The Brittle Sea: New and Selected Poems . Cydnabyddir y bardd-ganwr am ei ganu telynegol, cyfewin a chynnes, ac am gasgliad o bortreadau a ysbrydolwyd gan ei blentyndod ger yr arfordir yn Aberystwyth.
