A Square of Sunlight


Fearless and unsentimental, A Square of Sunlight encapsulates a whole life-time of loving life. Sometimes serious but always fun, these poems are gleeful in the face of heartbreak and ground world events (such as the assassination of JF Kennedy) in the business of being human. A Square of Sunlight has a wise understanding about how people work that can only be gained from living a rich life to the full with honesty and joy.

What Writers and Critics Think

  • Forthright and entertaining, affectionate, affecting and life-affirming, A Square of Sunlight is very good company.

    Michael Laskey
  • Full to the brim with life and bursting with dogs, cats, unreliable men and cars too small to have sex in, these poems are wonderfully irreverent, effortlessly wise and deliciously wicked.

    Kim Moore
  • Meg Cox's warm, wry and witty poems take us to the heart of what it is to love and what it is to lose. These are songs of experience, if not necessarily of innocence ...

    Nigel Pantling


Meg Cox did not write poetry until she completed a degree with the Open University in her sixties. Thank you Harold Wilson. Since then she has assiduously attended workshops with the Arvon Foundation, Poetry Business and Kim Moore, where she learnt, made friends and loved every minute. She lives in a small hamlet in the North of Herefordshire with a dog or two for company and a beautiful view, and thanks to writing poetry and the many friends she has made that’s fine.
